Antipsychotic weight: You may ask about Fanapt, Latuda, and Saphris (asenapine) as alternatives. Abilify is another option as is Seroquel XR in long-term studies. Best wishes.

Find non drug alternatives also to alleviate symptoms. These could include cognitive behavior therapy and yoga. Check out the book "Change, Transformation, and Beyond" by Dr Om Prakash.

First please have a complete physical examination to know if you have an illness. If not, your medication should be managed by a Psychiatrist. If you are not confident in your Doctor please see another for a second opinion. Please see a Clinical Psychologist with expertise in multiple types of psychotherapy to help. You may be referred for a sleep study.
