Thioridazine (lower potency) is not the same as thorazine. It is similar to perphenazine in some ways (mixed dopamine, serotonin antagonism). As to why...I'm not 100% sure. When depression meds didn't work one doctor wanted to go the bipolar route. I have to admit that lithium does help...but if I take it consistently I get really apathetic, so I take breaks. I don't have any 'classic' manic symptoms, but my mother is bipolar.

I think it was more related to agitation / anxiety. This was back in the early 2000's when olanzapine or seroquel was the 'go to' for all mental distress. Actually, I didn't mind olanzapine...it sufficiently wonked me out.
