Aww, that sucks that it didn't work out. You do have a strong type of schizophrenia. If you want to try another med that you cant pay for, theres usually "patient assistance programs" on the manufacters' site. Astrazeneca and so on. I wouldnt advise for typicals, but on the other hand I dont know everything. Alot of the typicals also block main adrenoceptors, so that risperal, saphris, fanapt fatique is still there.
MirageXD is on this obscure antipsychotic that is only available in other countries called sulpiride http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sulpiride
It works differently than normal typical antipsychotics by blocking them presynaptically, more like an atypical. It also states that it activates GHB receptors, I don't know what the consciousness effect of this is exactly but I do know that GHB could be a positive effect. The cool part is that it doesnt block adrenoceptors like haldol does. This might be researchable, and connected intercontinently with some institution. But again this is supposed to be one of the "weaker" ones.
There are a bunch of atypicals, and maybe you can find one that doesn't give you alot of the effects that made you want to switch.
Although abilify, and latuda seem to be the best bet for that. Except they can be both activating of schizoaffective symptoms in case you have that.
If no singular medication covers your symptoms, you might want to try bits of different medications as Ive seen some of that work for some people.
When I used a low dose risperdal when I trialed abilify, the outcome was actually pretty good. Cause the abilify for me activated some parts of my schizophrenia like elation and color perception modulations. It was better than risperdal alone for example, or abilify alone since abilify has a "partial agonist" part to it. The combination also got rid of abilify's akathesia.
You just have to find tricks like that for maximum improvements of symptoms, with least side effects.
There is about 26 or so different medications, so you'll find the right one for you. For example, someone said "Geodon rules!" on a forum, but other people said it sucked.
Also, Did you notice any improvement with the antimanics, antidepressant, or benzodiazepine that your doctor first gave you? I think that was an experimental trial at tackling schizophrenia without an AP. If so, you should do anything to try to zap out the starting paranoia or whatever feelings you get to exaberate your hallucinations.
