hi, lamdage. have you talked the psychiatrist about getting down to a more standard dose of tranquilizer?

from what little I've read about it, other drugs can help ease the tapering/dosage reduction process. gabapentin, lyrica, benzodiazepines...maybe hydroxyzine or other sedating antihistamine drugs, since you're on so much Seroquel.

have you ever tried abilify? I think the dose is usually capped at 30mgs/day, but I read on mad in America that there's some data that indicates that long term treatment w/ abilify doesn't cause as much D2 upregulation as most other tranquilizers. I do not know the long term TD risk. There are case reports of tardive akathisia from abilify, but I'm fairly certain that's true of any tranquilizer.

I also read on mad in America that anticonvulsants can help w/ tardive psychosis, or at least...that's a going theory, anyway. I seem to recall the article I read mentioning lamictal w/ a tranquilizer.

I hope your situation improves.
