Not sure........... but I do know that going without them certainly will...........If what you have is working then why oh why would you entertain the thought of going off them....You know what it takes to get stable....

I think that's mainly due to weight gain, diabetes, etc. that they can cause.

Well I don't believe he took antipsychotics ever.  He just happened to get diabetes later in life and consequently died from complications due to it.

My Dad is 70 with 44 years of medication behind him.  He is with medication induced parkinsons and diabetes.  He never took care of his health still eats sweets.  So make your own judgement.  He would have been dead by 30 without the meds?
