> Banga thanks. What about a 35year user of a benzo still same dose. Been on them all. At one point was med free as life was easy and I felt safe. Phillipa

There's more to a history of benzodiazepines, remember, Jan, that includes psychological factors. The "med free" and "feel safe" part includes that as well as habituation.

But each person is different.

(In order of FDA approval, not use)

Risperdal - 2 weeks with Prozac and 1mg dose, finger twitch 6 years going if any antipsychotic is taken. Nightmares.

Zyprexa - 12.5mg, one month. Stiff. Possible multifocal Tardive Dystonia (feet, legs, arms). (Wouldn't know, resumed Seroquel, a palleative, as is Clozaril) Weight loss (!) from Seroquel. No EPS.

Seroquel - 400-1200mg, interrupted, resumed. Fatigue and weight gain, orthostatic hypotension. Receptors possibly used to it or disorder has shifted, does not 100% work in the same way now at MED of 400mg. Orofacial tic disorder, psychologically aggravated, lifetime of tic not known. Otherwise unremarkable and the closest to an agent besides the upcoming Clozaril switch that slows down a multifaceted problem, if you can digest all of that. No EPS.

Geodon - Modest dose. EPS: Writhing on floor from akathisia. Otherwise unremarkable.

Abilify - Modest dose. EPS: Writhing on floor from akathisia. Otherwise unremarkable.

Invega - Not tried.

Clozaril - Jan or Feb 2008.

Bifeprunox refiling - who knows.

Asenapine NDA approval - barely possible. Sounds roughly as strong as Risperdal though.
