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.

Hi Jay and thank you!

Interesting to see that you use a similar medication with success. I have never had such a strong anxiolytic effect from an SGA. The only other FGA I have tried is sulpiride which had a mild effect.
I took 15mg last night and could feel it start working in 10 min. it had a nice anxiolytic effect from the start that continued to increase. After an hour I decided to take another dose just to see how I respond to it. After a couple of hours I was quite heavily sedated. Let's just say I had no trouble falling asleep for the night.
With an upper bound of 300mg I feel confident this medication can quell any anxiety and panicky feelings when traveling and other stressful situations. I feel really optimistic about the whole situation.

Re lamotrigine, I have been on and off this med for many years and it's still difficult to gauge its efficacy for my (unipolar) depression. For anxiety it's more or less neutral. I'm currently off it. Highest dose was 200mg but tends to make me sleepy at that dose plus giving me headache.

Best regards
