Atypical antipsychotics - least sedating?


What's the least sedating atypical antipsychotic? I've been on Risperidal which helped a lot with least amount of sedation, however on the higher doses it was causing lactation, so I wanted to get off it. So my psychiatrist recommended Latuda, a relatively new drug, but when I went to the pharmacy to pick it up, it said my insurance took off $943 but it still cost $417 for a small bottle of pills, so I need to try something else. Any other ones I can try?

I shed my wings for this, and it was worth it.

It's hard to say. Everybody reacts differently. I found the most sedating antipsychotic to be Nozinan followed by Seroquel. I also tried Zyprexa (Olanzapine) and I experienced no sedation at all off that drug.

And wet she rose from the lake, and fast and fleet went she
One half the form of a maiden fair with a jet black mare's body

And loud, long and shrill he blew til his steed was by his side
High overhead the grey hawk flew and swiftly did he ride
Saying "Course well, my brindled hound, and fetch me the jet black mare
Stoop and strike, my good grey hawk, and bring me the maiden fair"
