Well, I have SP and CANNOT tolerate anything having a dopamine antagonist effect (I tried Haloperidol and it was the most frightening, horrific experience of my life).
I take Klonopin and Lyrica for my SP (which has a touch of GAD mixed in). The Lyrica is very prosocial which I suspect is due to its dopamine agonist side effects. Klonopin doesn't do this but helps with the generalised anxiety.
