do neuroleptics always=dysphoria?

Posted by Christ_empowered on April 23, 2021, at 8:08:38

my psych agreed to a reduction in aripiprazole dosage. started at 20, "doing well" at 10. the only adverse effects I've encountered seem related to a reduction in sedation, which is a welcome change, but understandably...took a bit of getting used to. point of all this is...

to ask: is there -always- a certain degree of dysphoria, low grade depression, general...not so awesome feeling...associated with the neuroleptics?

the Orthomolecular psychiatrists, referencing some 50s big time psych whose name escapes me, often refer to 'the tranquilizer psychosis.' I often felt so clever, on aripiprazole, loaded to the gills on supplements, in avoiding 'the tranquilizer psychosis...'

and now, I don't feel so clever, and I'm honestly wondering: are these pills inherently...depressing?
