This applies only to antipsychotics but I know they are increasingly used for mood stabilization and certainly for people with bipolar with psychotic features. I have posted how I have recovered with glycine, a glutamate antagonist, a new form of antipsychotic that is in development in Phase II FDA study. I ended up on this medication because I was unable to tolerate all currently available antipsychotics and have advanced tardive dyskinesia. I am in no manner making reccomendations to change treatments but I am trying to get a feel for how many people have either not recovered with all currently available antipsychotics (for example, you still have psychotic thoughts) or have severe long term side effects (akathesia or dystonia which are short term movement disorders, cognitive side effects, weight gain). My specific goal that is advocating within the system and approved by my provider as well as the various researchers and officials I have spoken with is to have new antipsychotics fast tracked through the studies. But I want to show there is a pressing need. And I believe there is. But more specifics help than statistics. So if you have these issues, it would help not only you but consumer advocacy as a whole to let me know. I'll put some commmon problems people run into and you can add another if they don't cover it.
