> i don't have solid data on how frequent it is, but...yeah: clozapine can and does cause TD.

Oh. I didn't know. But Clozapine is still the least likely to do that, right?

> in addition, some experts have noticed a definite withdrawal/discontinuation syndrome associated with clozapine, just as one has been noted with those who stop lithium. in both cases, the 'symptoms' can get hellish for a time, often worse than when treatment began. and with clozapine, there seems to be a lot of akathisia popping up after withdrawing the drug, which...

Most Psychmeds are this way. Clozapine and Zyprexa make you feel particularly cozy so yeah, I think they are worse to withdraw than others, but not THAT much worse. Other Psychmeds are bad, too in that regard.

The individual in question has depression, possibly bipolar. So I surmise that she won't ever be psychotic unless manic and she is not certain to become manic on an AD either. It's just a possibility. So I would try to go with a mood stabilizer/antidepressant combo and leave the antipsychotics away.

Seroquel 700mg
Zyprexa 25mg :(
Trazodone 75mg
Venlafaxine 37.5mg
Metformin 2000mg
Lithium 225mg
Blueberries!!! and Orthomolecular
