> was there a calming effect?

Yes, it was calming I think as well as helping my overall cognition/executive function.

<did it make the other meds work better?>

Yes especially the ritalin which helps me with mood and motivation in the morning.

> have you ever tried supplements? some people swear by taurine...small studies suggest that 4 grams/daily help people with psychosis who are also on tranquilizers. by itself, there is a calming effect...GABA-ergic, if I recall correctly.

Thank you for the suggestion.

> how long have you been off of the lithium? just asking because I remember skimming over an article...both lithium and clozapine have well-documented discontinuation syndromes. maybe...and I hate saying it, I do...but maybe try to just give it some time?
> hope this helps. :-)
I didn't realize there was a discontinuation syndrome.

Thank you for all your feedback!
