    Lisa, Anti psychotic drugs are often used for someone having some degree of hallucination or a dysfunction in your ability to go through the day normally and comfortably. Is there a specific anti pschotic drug that you have a question about.? Would be pleased to give you more specific information. Some Anti Psychoticchotic drugs are occassionaly used for other health issues. Please feel free to read my profile and then IM or email me if I can be of further help. Just to make it clear, just because you are taking anti psychotic drugs, Does NOT mean you are "crazy". It just helps to stabilize certain chemicals in your brain. God Bless Reggie R

    Please do your research. If its for a project, look for reliable websites, or better yet, books published in the last couple of years. If its for yourself, please contact your doctor, and/or pharmacist for professional information.
