Talk w/psychiatrist: You have not asked a question here, but have expressed your displeasure with some of the available antipsychotic medications for your illness. Please discuss this with your own psychiatrist, as there are still other options available. Paranoid schizophrenia is a serious illness and does need treatment. Best wishes.
