Yes, Phillipa.

I've tried a handful of anti-psychotics.

The two docs that looked at each other and chuckled when I asked 'what is a nervous breakdown?' in the hospital 2yrs back put me on Trileptal and either Zyprexa or Seroquel (?) AWA Valium. I gained 20lbs, 4x my normal weight, and could barely breathe, so dc'd.

When tried these at other times suggested 4 their anxiolytic effect, besides the prior effect, I refer to my notes and have 'headache' and 'cotton ball head' written down.

AFA Effexor-XR, it helped me, I think, the 1st two stints, the last three (I know!) times I reached for it again, those stints weren't good, mayB had developed a tolerance. It was suggested I get up to the 300mg dosage and doing this just didn't sit right w/ me.

My reasons for dc'ing some meds may not seem right to some, but to me they are important.

At some point, I may again chose to try something like Seroquel in a small dosage only at bedtime.

I came home from P past week w/ trazodone for sleep, but the jury's out. Need to post.
