yes. i've read some case studies where people w/ psychosis were put on neuroleptics and then they also needed benzodiazepines, to deal with the panic attacks and such.

in that little article, the "experts" said that the atypicals don't cause as much of a problem. i seem to recall a lot of switching from haldol to seroquel, plus xanax xr.

but...i suspect it could potentially happen w/ any neuroleptic. i tolerate 20mgs/abilify, but some people have serious anxiety on abilify and other newer, 'atypical' tranquilizers. it is well known that sufficient doses of tranquilizers can produce a deficit syndrome that looks a lot like "negative symptoms," including social withdrawal. not good.

sorry about this, lamdage.
