i don't know if your 'psychotic' or not, but there are certain reasons docs choose anti-psychotics, it doesn't necessarily mean your psychotic. but that doesn't mean you should blindly listen to him. if your scared of it TELL him/her. let them know you are REALLY hesitant, tell him why you are hesitant but ask them why they choose that drug for you? what symptoms do they think it will help and why.

but, i do agree with the others about the 'all at once'. i think the mixture and all at once is too much. if you get side effects you won't know what they're from and will have to stop all of them which could make things worse.
TELL him this. let him know that if you are willing to try some new meds/dosages that you will but you want to start slowly and one at a time.
my docs real big on this. it's important to see what works, how quickly and what sideeffects and that's hard to do if you mess with multiple new additions and dosage changes at the same time.

i lik to keep something in mind when i go see any doctor. 1) they are a doctor for a reason, they did get the training and do have the clinical experience 2)however, they could have just as easily been a C student as an A student, we just don't know.
so i guess what i'm saying is trust a little but don't ignore your instinct. and if you ask questions and they refuse to discuss it with you RUN don't walk to the next doctor.

best wishes dear Phillipa
