> Maybe you are going to have to tell them what's *off the table* for use. Just tell them that there is NO WAY you are going to take an SSRI or an antipsychotic. You WILL BE NONCOMPLIANT. I have had to tell at least two pdocs that I WILL NOT TAKE ANY ANTIPSYCHOTIC - DO MORE HOMEWORK PLEASE. If you can communicate to them what you will NOT do, then they have to come up with something else. I *did* see a pdoc once that told me NOT to revisit meds that don't work (make you a zombie or feel worse), and wished I would have stuck with that one.

-- That's good advice. And, don't let the pdoc patronize you because you are young. You know what does not work for you based on past experience. And, you have done a lot of research and have become quite knowledgeable about psychotropic meds.
