id really 1st see about a slow and steady reduction in neuroleptic load, if possible and OK with a good doctor. to that end...

if its OK, then maybe an as needed sedative of whatever sort, during the dosage reduction and for a time after wards, while your brain readjusts?

that's just me. not to nitpick your treatment providers or whatever, but you seem to be on a relatively high doses of 2 different newer neuroleptics. every day.

i read a little tidbit somewhere that animal studies had suggested that using lamictal with neuroleptics reduces D2 upregulation, which I would think might make it easier to stay on a steady no (no escalation) or even reduce a bit (maybe?), but that's just from memory and it was just animal data, not anything from people.

other thought...random reading, here and there, on 'tardive psychosis' (not trying to scare you...applies to me, too, plus however many people are on the neuroleptics for...whatever indication...) has me tempted to ask for some kind of anticonvulsant, but...

ugh. even lamictal, trileptal...not without adverse effects, risks, drug-drug interactions. phenytoin? why?
