Right now I take zyprexa 15mg. Ive taken it before at 5, 7.5, and 10mg, but 15 is what works for me right now. The first few times I took it, I noticed a greatly increased appetite (which is why Ive been unwilling to take it for extended periods of time before), but I dont get that anymore. There are also ways to counteract the weight gain if you decide to try this one. It is a bit sedating, so useful for sleep, but if you take it a few hours before bed, at least for me, daytime sedation isnt a big problem. Other than that, I find it great, for both mood and 'thought disorder'.
Ive also taken seroquel, mainly for sleep, but only up to 200mg. At that strength, it was really only helpful for sleep, and for a little while for anxiety. I take 100mg of it now for sleep in addition to the zyprexa, and the side effects I get are sedation (obviously) and dry mouth.
The other one Ive tried is geodon, which at a low dose was pretty energizing, but was not helpful in controlling symptoms, while higher doses put me in a mental fog.
Hope this helps,
