I've been on Sulpiride 150mg/day for over a year now. My pdoc *guaranteed* there was no likelihood of TD. I don't think the literature bears his claims out. I'm likely to be on it for some time. Anyone know how it compares to conventional APs? Thanks v much.

I've seen this a no. of times & I've just been dx'd BP. :-0
