Default Pimozide

Has anyone been on this? Dr gave me small dose of this in hospital for 3 days for negative thoughts. Didn't get any results.
Well, the clock says it's time to close now
I guess I'd better go now
I'd really like to stay here all night
The cars crawl past all stuffed with eyes
Street lights share their hollow glow
Your brain seems bruised with numb surprise
Still one place to go
Still one place to go

Let me sleep all night in your soul kitchen
Warm my mind near your gentle stove - Jim Morrison

I cannot say that I have, but i have researched it.

That is a pretty potent antipsychotic. Much more potent than Thorazine and Haldol.

That being said, you are using a small dosage so that ought to be fine. I am on a different AP at a small dosage (Flupentixol) for anxiety and depression. So it seems that these drugs are used for other things as well.

wow. i didn't know pimozide was used for that. i thought it was for tourette's and other tic disorders. even in those conditions...dysphoria and straight up depression are fairly common, along with tardive dyskinesia.

perhaps ask about a different drug? the tranquilizers, in general, are kind of heavy artillery, so maybe see if the shrink will try something from a different class 1st, if possible?
