Hi jack9999 :
Your wife's case in regard to APs, Geodon and Risperdal sounds to me like 'Extreme case' about which I never heard of. However, I often heard about the older form of anti-pspycho-med., such as 'Haldol' has terrible side-effect, 'TD,' for that reason, new form of anti-psycho.meds. such as Geodon, Zyprexa, Abilify and more to list came to the market, not long ago. I believe that Zyprexa is one of the first APs, around 1996 and all other APs are all quite new, even around last year or so. In my common sense, if there is such 'BAD' reaction among a lot of AP takers, all of AP meds. must have already taken off from the shelf now, ... at least 'NO present/future production' in the pharmatecal market.

In regard to your wife's TD, you didn't state as to what dosage, how often and all other details on which your wife was put. Also, I wonder whether your wife did 'DISCONTINUE' right after her bad reaction, ... noticeable 'side-effects.' Because, any meds., not only APs also other class of med., such as 'Lamical'/skin-rash, SSRIs/suicidal thoughts and the like. Then, it is very important for psycho.-med. takers to 'discontinue' or 'call to the pdoc. IMMEDIATELY once any unusal symptoms developed.

As you quote, many of M.I., including myself are on some form of AP to seek a 'BIG' relief from tremendous pain on which we, at least I've been carrying. Without the Zyprexa, practically my life is almost 'upside down,' not to able to function even simple daily life. I owe tremendously this 'miracle' drug, AP.
