Atypical APs certainly work well for some people, both those who are psychotic and those who aren't.

If you lived in England you would probably have got more Thorazine, although it (chlorpromazine) is called Largactil here. Low doses are still used as a short term treatment for severe anxiety.

You take a very low dose of Risperdal only when required, yes? I don't think the risks of such as strategy are great. In fact, I think they are probably very small.
