Flupenthixol was what I was asking about. Thanks for all the information.
I have taken perphenazine on and off for a long time and did not have hyperprolactinemia. When I started a low dose of Amisulpride I had hyperprolactinemia almost immediately an dmy period stopped and I gained weight immediately in very specific places like my stomach. I have just gone off of it again and am not having a good time of it but I am bulimic and the weight issue and body changes were making me nuts. Rationally I know that I should stay on it but I have become even more of a hermit from the weight gain and I could not stand it anymore. I was thinking that perhaps I could get a similar result with a small dose of Flupenthixol but from what you wrote I think I would have the same problems. The perphenazine does not help as much as the Amisulpride did. I think if it had helped me function more or helped the anhedonia at all I might have tried to stay on it more.
Let me know what you think I appreciate the input.
