> Fluanxol is amazingly strong stuff. I can't imagine what it must be like to use doses like 6 mg/day.

I've tried a dose like that, and the effects are scarcely dramatic. It seemed to cause restless legs.

> I'll persist for a few more days on 0.375 mg/day however, but I'm wondering which is the greater evil: mild brain shrinkage or negative mood and poor functioning.

Brain shrinkage is irrelevant if it doesn't have any symptoms. Many people have used antipsychotics for much longer and at higher doses, and there have been no reports (AFAIK) of symptomatic brain shrinkage.
