Chairman MAO has spoken highly of it. I apparently didn't tolerate molindone at all, as I think I only took a pill or two in the hospital before I was switched to perphenazine. A low dose of perphanazine no doubt is good for my panic attacks, many of which are triggered by severe nausea. Nortriptyline has the same steadying effect on my upper GI system without the EPS or extreme sedation (there's another understatement for you).

As implied above, I found an extremely low dose helpful in quelling nausea and panic attacks caused by that. I don't know exactly what the starting dose was.
