    Thanks for this informative article. I always felt that the atypical antipsychotic I am taking is one of the most effective/powerful things I take that keeps things under control for me. My doc wouldn’t admit it, he just said it helps with regulating sleep, but he also said that bipolar is most effectively treated with mood stabilizer and antipsychotic.

    Please clarify this column and clearly identify Tardive Dykenesia as what it is: not as tics and involuntary movements; not to be confused with Tourette’s _often comorbid with some mental illness); and, without a doubt, most of the time, irreversible.
