> Talking about EPS and Tardive diskinesia . I read that there is no drug safer than Clozapine , but is not used due to the disminution of the white blood cells in your body
> (Agranulositosis)

yep that is exactly what i read ... i think clozapine has virtually no incidence of EPS and TD.... who knows, maybe Abilify will turn out to be as good

> Seroquel is very similar chemically to Clozapine , and did not have this side effect
> Thats why is the safest AP on the market . (According to the reads I have made)

i hope i come across as wanting to inform rather than being argumentative ;) but really i have read tons of articles that list Zyprexa as the lowest .... talked to people who got EPS on Seroquel but not Zyprexa.... and my doc said he saw much more EPS on Seroquel

however! Seroquel does have a shorter binding to the D2 receptors.... the only reason Zyprexa has less EPS i believe is because of superior 5HT2A antagonism .... who knows if it has less TD?

i also read a report a while ago (2000?) where they were saying Seroquel has LESS EPS than placebo! but that turned out to be bogus

if you guys are serious about taking seroquel and EPS i will dig up a few articles from google...... though i suppose there are other reasons to take seroquel (perhaps less weight gain or sedation than zyprexa?) ......... i would like to see everyone have the success i did ........ i would like to think that it's possible to have 100% remission and 0 side effects (that's what i'm looking at with parnate, ritalin, abilify and lorazepam)

either way, be well guys :) and keep sharing the info, together we can beat this thing
