... Oh my, I think thats' an antipsychotic, aka a major tranquilizer (downer). I think those scare me even more than stimulants and ADs from what I've read of them! They are capable of major nervous system damage in some people over time like tardive dyskinesia, neuroleptic malignant syndrome and such. I didn't think they used those for ADD but more for bi-polar mania, ODD and... (30 replies)

On... (4 replies)
