Fear of living on the streets. Sobers me right up.

Moban, Stellazine, Haldol, Prolixin, Navane, Mellaril, and, of course, Thorazine.

Isn’t Clozapine the strongest? That’s what I read in Wikipedia.

None of the typicals ever did a thing for me. I’ve heard that Clozaril was the most potent of the atypicals. Risperdal is runner up. I’ve always refused Clozaril.

Ehhhhhh I’ve been on everything I think haldol was the strongest

Clozapine is supposed to be the strongest and used in hard to treat sz/sza. I’ve been on for about 2 years. It’s the only one that has really work for me. It has a few crappy side effects.

Geodon works well if you don’t mind not being able to exercise, heart disease, tremors, fainting, and erectile dysfunction.

On the plus side you won’t gain weight but every time I have been hospitalized they shoot me up with Haldol.

So I think that’s the go to emergency drug.
