Worst neuroleptic to withdraw from?

Postby radioinmyhead » Apr 09, 2013 7:13 am

Hello everyone,

I don't know or remember if I asked this before or read about it... But I was wondering what is the worst neuroleptic to withdraw from?

Zyprexa?
Haldol?

I had a Icarus-oriented p-doc turn me down just for Haldol (out of all my 5-mix cocktail). Said p-doc would only take me 1% at a time for Haldol 2mg. Of course, I've been on several other neuroleptics in the past couple decades. But this p-doc "explained" that too many ppl like me have ended up in the p-hospital at the near-end of neuroleptic withdrawal.

So is a difference in intensity or outcome with neuroleptic withdrawal?

Seroquel is the one that I've had the hardest time with by far, but I haven't been on many other neuroleptics for a long term, so maybe that's why when I was on them they were easier to get off of.

I guess for me it's the most tolerable of the anti-psychotics I've been on, but I still hate it. I'm in the process of reducing again starting tonight. I've had a fair amount of trouble getting anywhere lower than 250 without having no sleep for days on end. I'm starting to think that all anti-psychotics are absolute trash. Trying to tell a shrink it's not serving it's purpose doesn't work, they seem hell bent on prescribing them, don't they?
