You reminded me of a very important concept - weighing the balance between benefits versus risk.

With the risk of TD or other longterm complications, I wonder, is that an acceptable risk in order to experience a time period of respectable wellness and engagement in life?

Does it make more sense to suffer year after year as only a fraction of yourself, so as to avoid hypothetical speculative side effects sometime way out in the future, and we don't even know if we live that long in the first place....or does it make more sense to live robust as much as possible and deal with any risks if they show up?

Benefit versus risk. Looking back, I wish I had taken on more risk earlier and suffered less. There is already a ton of risk in not being as well as possible. Life is too short. imo

I mean, long-term...not a good idea, especially with the TD risk going up with stimulants mixed with neuroleptics, all that...but it "got the job done," quickly and effectively.
