> There is a consensus on my psychiatric hospital that pregabalin is not prescribed because of too many bad experiences. We started talking about alternatives like anti-psychotics, I suggested Latuda to take regularly but we agreed it's better to take an anti-psychotic as needed, since the severity of my anxiety increases in certain situations/circumstances. She said Latuda is too week, and she suggested Chlorprothixene which is an FGA. I already picked it up from the pharmacy and took a low dose of 15mg 30 minutes ago. I can already feel a nice calming effect but it's too early to tell how it will work for me, but it feels promising.

Hi Tensor,

That is excellent you reacted well to Chlorprothixene!! I take a low dose of a FGA too, one called Nozinan (Methoprazine). It is a similar medication. It works excellent for me during stressful times, and Chlorprothixene should continue to work great for you. Studies have shown FGA's and SGA's are equal in treating symptoms of all sorts.

Let's see how this works, and I am very glad for you. I have been on methoprazine for over 20 years, with only small dose increases needed once in a while.

p.s. one suggestion I am not sure has been brought up is lamotragine. Antidepressants of every kind do not work for me (I am bipolar 2), and lamotragine brought me out of the dark. Antidepressants don't usually work in bipolar disorder.

Anyhow, one at a time, right? lol.

Best,
Jay
