I would go with the sulpirides -- Impromen (bromperidol) is a very potent antipsychotic and you have possible/proven TD.


Now the sulpirides are argued not to be atypicals, but they do have the properties of them -- they're not available in the US but they are in Europe, so maybe that is a better choice.


But I think that one of the problems with all of the APs that you have tried, and I could be mistaken -- I'm not your doctor(s), is that you may not have reached the MED (minimum effective dose).


Without that, you're not getting the benefits of things like Clozaril, even for all its massive side effects that I know you have been suffering through.


I do wish you well and I hope that you get to a dose that regulates things for you and makes you happier, so that you can socialize and feel better about yourself. The psychological components of schizophreniform disorders are just as important.


-- best wishes Jeroen
