> Yeah, believe me, I am embarassed by my delusions, too. Did the meds help you think more clearly?

Not as far as I could tell. In fact, they (at least the quetiapine) dulled me through their anti-histamine effects.

> Or did you get over it without meds? For me, discontinuing Nardil helped a lot. The antipsychotics even more.

For me, the passage of time, perhaps through using the time for contemplation and reasoning, seems to resolve delusions, slowly. I think (some) anti-psychotics can help speed up the process, through stimulating objective thinking, which may in turn promote certain aspects of critical thinking. When I say "some", I mean clozapine and especially trimipramine; incidentally, I've read they have similar receptor binding profiles. Note that this is just my experience, as it looks from my perspective; it may well be clozapine that does the main part and the addition of trimipramine amounts to reaching a "critical mass" of antipsychotic action.

Trimipramine is otherwise less effective as an antipsychotic than perazine according to a German study. See:
