Is he giving you a taper for the benzos? Nobody should be withdrawn abruptly from benzos, and antipsychotics are not recommended from treating benzo withdrawal syndrome (at least where I live). I sympathise because exactly the same thing happened to me yeras ago. A young pdoc that took over the practice wanted me to go off Klonopin and switch to Zyprexa. He'd been taught in his training that benzos were the devil and Zyprexa was king. I said no, but in the end he just cut off my scrpits and I went to hell. Luckily I'm now seeing a pdoc who is quite a bit older and more experienced, and he thinks benzos are prefereable to antipsychotics, which is exactly what I think too.

If I could offer you one peice of advice, it would be to find a pdoc who has a more balanced view of the relative risks and benefits of antipsychotics and benzos.
