thanks that is pretty interesting and its interesting to see flupenthixol represented as a atypical/typical crossover drug.
I was also interested by your discussion of haldol and dopamine receptor site occupation. Does the same hold true for flupenthixol or is it weaker? What does it really mean that say 70% of the receptor sites are occupied by the drug? What would happen if 100% were occupied? is there an optimal value? Oh and whilst I am asking questions, the TD thread got me wondering what are my chances of getting TD given that I take 6-9mg of flupenthixol and 20mg of pericyazine daily? Does the fact that I have been taking the flupenthixol for some years mean I am less likely to develop it? I was also wondering if theres any reason why I shouldnt take my flupenthixol as a single morning dose as I have been doing? does flupenthixol hang around long enough to build up and not require split doses like recommended in the leaflet? certainly I havent noticed any ill effects!
Lots of questions tonight lol hope you are well.
