Has anyone ever had any good experiences with anti-psychotics?

If so, which one(s) were they?

I've tried quetiapine 400mg (hated it), aripiprazole 30mg (seems to be less effective than it used to be) and olanzapine 5mg (allergic).

    The best I've been on so far is Invega. I am on that currently. I still have hallucinations/delusions right now but I am on a low dose to start. It has helped some though with being able to focus a bit better and hallucinations diminishing from what they used to be. I do notice I have an abnormal gait now but I am on 3 meds all together so it might be the others. I cant say for sure.

    Olanzapine 5mg - made me fat.

    Respiridone - didnt' work.

    Abilify - makes me anxious, can't sit still I have to keep walking and it gave me a tachycardia for a few months.
