Maybe it's because it works so d*mn well.

I have access to both Risperdal and Klonopin and I almost never use Klonopin. Klonopin brings a totally different sort of calm. One that seems centered in my head, and that affects my wakefulness. It doesn't quite make me groggy, but it can make me feel sleepy. Risperdal can affect my brain in that it frees me from obsessive thinking in a way that Klonopin just can't. But mostly it affects me at a bone deep level. It calms my jangling nerves. Klonopin impairs my ability to work. Risperdal enhances my ability to stop obsessing and work, and it stops the electrical feeling of anxiety.

Don't condemn the use of antipsychotics. For some people it is by far the best choice of antianxiety medication.
