AP's are really nothing like benzos. They work far far better for a meltdown than a benzo does. They help my mind focus rather than make me sleepy. I can't recall the last time I took a benzo. Maybe I would for immediate emergency situations or if I were going on an airplane.

And for me, it isn't necessary to take Risperdal all the time. Once the worst is over, I go off them. As a diabetic they aren't really good for me.

Zyprexa is the most sedating of them, though. So if it doesn't work for that reason, don't give up on the whole genre.

I understand the fear of weight gain. But the consequences of a meltdown are pretty severe. Taking an AP when needed for just as long as you need to to feel stable shouldn't be a huge weight gain risk, and far preferable to the fallout from a meltdown.
