Hi Willow.

Navane is one of the older "typical" antipsychotics. Apparently it has a reputation of being "powerful" which is probably why it has been prescribed. She has been on various antipsychotics for over 25 years but I was very surprised to hear that she has not been tried on one of the newer "atypical" ones like Zyprexa.It breaks my heart to see her trembling, and hear that it even interferes with her sleep. I am trying to get my Dad to take her to the pdoc and try one of the atypicals. He is hesitant though for good reason: part of my mothers paranoia is that people are out to "put her in a mental home" and regards any attempt to change medication as a move in that direction.
Do you know which of the atypicals is best for paranoid symptoms? Navane controls the hallucinations but not the paranoia. She also seems depressed. Do any of these have an antidepressant effect as well?
