- Because there are so much better alternatives out there being a lot more safe.

- Because APs are suboptimals for the depression. They often worsen the depressive symptoms.

- Because of their dreaded side effects:TARDIVE DYSKINESIA and INVOLUNTARY MOVEMENTS without counting diabete and massive weight gain.

- Because there aren't simply not appropriate; reference to their mode of actions.


To put it simple, APs are greats for what they have been created; they are real sledge hammer for:

- For the schizophrenia.
- For psychosis, of course
- For the treatment of acute mania (recently)
- And as last resort, augmentation strategies in the treatment of depression IF and only IF everything else have failed.

Well this is of course my opinion and i share it with you because i feel that everybody here deserve to be well treated.

Max.
