i had experiences with anti psychotics, and a couple did induce a psychotic reaction. i initially took it for depression/sleep and the dose was raised to high. i eventually strarted having the symptoms that people have who usually take the drug. we tried 3. it was a very scary experience! i concluded that it was b/c i didn't have any real reason to take it to begin with so it was having a reverse reaction on me. creating what it couldn't fix. (i dunno??) but i think it is a rare experience. this was just me and i am drug sensitive, i am not trying to discourage the use of them at all.

i would talk to him about lithium again, it can be VERY helpful and i would also talk to him about an anti-psychotic. not about taking both at once but it sounds like he needs to be more open to the options, it is weird he is turning his nose on everything. anti-psychotics can be very helpful to people, but be prepared for side effects. i find it is more helpful to know in advance what to expect so you can try to counter it.
good luck
