Alara,

I would get to a psychiatrist, try to get a recommendation for a good one, and would start with Lexapro. It's side effect profile is incredibly low; it's a very clean drug. If you have anxiety, maybe some Xanax as needed. If you're sleep walking, I'd go with Adderall XR.

I agree with you even on the newer atypical anti-psychotics, I wouldn't go there till you try some other things first. Even at a low dose, Tardive Dyskinesia is a possibility.

Start simple without going into AP's and mood stabilizers.

Just another opinion.

Phil
