Hi Ed,
What does AFAIK mean? I am going back to school and am studying about neuroleptics. I have a great interest in them as you well know. :) These drugs scare me so much b/c I was given them out of a medical mistake and now am still payingn some price. I am off all drugs for about 16 months and still have w/d effects even though I think the benzo is causing alot of this. Anyways, didn't mean to get off track but now that I am drug free I am afriad to take any drugs thinking it will cause TD or some other movement disorder to show up. What drug(s) should I stay away so that this doesn't happen? i.e. dopamine activating drugs I know some anesthesia meds can cause CNS dispution too. My CNS system is so fragile right now. The reason I am concerned is b/c I am about to give birth and what if I need anesthesia?

Since I was on neuroleptics is my brain more fragile if I ever went on AP's again? I guess what I am getting at is this: is my brain suseptible to TD since I was on AP's or has the brain recovered? This isn't just about my casee but I just wanted to know some answers. I am thinking of seeing a neurologist to get some answers. Does the brain grow new cells in replaced to what was damaged? Is my brain chemistry changed? I know these are extremely difficult questions but my mind and body need to get past this and I can't until I know some answewrs.
