In reply to neuroleptic dosage, long term, posted by Christ_empowered on September 4, 2022, at 10:56:19

Hi C_e:

I have been on ap's for just over 20 years. I started on ad's about 30 years ago. Now, when I first started the ap's, I thought I would eventually get td, and I do have some very, very mild tremors once in awhile, but not as much as when I was on a very high dose of Prozac. The SRI's do act, sort of, as in a similar method as ap's, suppressing dopamine.

I thought, with the combo of Prozac, Risperdal, and occasional Nozinan (an older ap, similar, but IMHO, way, way less harsher, than the effects of Seroquel) that I would get td, and the Thorazine 'shuffle' at my age. But, as long as I keep a steady, but low dose of my current ad, Effexor, I tolerate the Risperdal and Nozinan very well.

I am also considering using the Nozinan as a prn, and may be adding in a low dose of Abilify. I have some Abilify in my med chest, and am slowly adding it to my regiment. I also am looking at going to a neurologist for a brain health 'check-up', as I am 53, and think it would be a good idea.

My general persona is to be a quite laid-back individual, and a bit shy, and I have finally started to accept and make peace with that. I used to think ad's would make me more 'sharper' and 'resilient', and ap's make me less stressed. But with good counselling, or maybe it's age, I find I am a bit more content and happier with myself. My bipolar disorder was really aggravated by way too high doses of meds overall.

So, that is just 'IMHO', etc.

Best,
Jay
