    Hi Ann-Marie

    Please accept my condolences on the loss of your Gran. Sorry I’m a bit late in doing this, I don’t post on TP much these days.

    In answer to your question Sulpride is one of the Antipsychotic medications.

    Best wishes

    Cate

    hi ann marie

    my sympathy on your loss

    my mum had been prescribed sulpiride, although she no longer takes it.. at the beginning of her illness she was hearing voices and it was prescribed for that.
    it is also used to treat anxiety.
