Olansopine stopped my worries really good. Ive been on heaps of antipsychotics and that is the only one that really did anything. Pleased you have a positive story to tell. Probably not a popular choice by me, but that is my opinion.

Lamictal put a bottom on my depression so I didn’t keep falling lower and lower. Lexapro did the same thing but made me manic so I had to make the switch.

Olanzapine stopped my hallucinations and anxiety, but unfortunately I couldn't stay on it.

Ariprizole and haldol - it have side effects but I'm almost calm enough.

I am simply unable to make myself try an antidepressant again. Side effects cause me real problems. Recent meds have caused issues with my Thyroid, Liver enzymes, possibly my low white blood count and increased anxiety.

I am defenseless except for a small dose of Xanax, meditation and exercise.

ClozirAl keeps me balanced, while respierdal does the behind the scene miracles. I would immensly reccomend this tandemn.
