Hmmm...that's rough. One fun fact about AP/AAP drugs: sometimes, when withdrawn, they can cause psychosis in those who were never psychotic to begin with, or a more severe psychotic episode in those who have experienced psychosis. I forget the reason...D2 upregulation, something like that.

Maybe just taper the seroquel and increase the zyprexa? I don't see how you can stand that much must be made of tougher stuff than me, lol.

Some case studies suggest that Abilify can help w/ other AP/AAP drugs. I don't know the mechanism, but I found a few case studies on with a couple people on loxapine, one with Risperidone, one with clozapine. I seem to recall reading about add-on Abilify for, if nothing else, mitigating weight gain with other drugs. I don't know how they do dosing or what the side effects might be. Probably a better option than some other treatments for AAP induced weight gain (I knew a lady on zyprexa and Didrex, lol...bad call on her docs part).

Anyway, I wish you the best of luck.
