no one here is going to be qualified to give you good advice on this. this is something to discuss with doctors. how different supps are going to react to a variety of anti-psychotics is really impossible to predict and a dangerous prediction to make.
i wish you all the best but strongly recommend you are very cautious with any information you recieve on a message board.

I am on 1.5 mg which is a very low dose of a specific anti psychotic. They advise you don't take PWO caff/arginine/creatine supps if you are on scripts for depression/anxiety. I have taken them for 5 years without issue. I have read of others experiencing increased anxiety when taking the mildly harder supplements. I am looking for those with experience to tell me of theirs. Will my body begin to adjust or will these caffeine headaches and daydreaming continue? My doctor is little to no help. He is more of dealer than a doctor.

I would find a doctor that is willing to discuss issues that you feel are important. There are plenty of doctors around and not all of them operate as more of a dealer than a doctor. It might take a couple of tries to get one that works for you though.

I have no idea what "Animal Cuts" or the other product you are taking are, but: my suggestion would be to Google their ingredients, gain a reasonable understanding of the MOAs of their ingredients, and subsequently take the list with explanation to your pharmacist.
If your doctor is indeed unhelpful - which many are - it is entirely possible that a pharmacist will have a firmer grasp on possible contraindications between your medicine and compounds with similar methods of action as the supplements you are taking. This way, at the very least, you can gain a reasonable understanding of how the respective pathways of your prescription medications and your supplements may be affecting one another.
As for your queries, however: there is no definitive answer, nor even any responsible guess one can give. The contraindications between prescription medications and herbal supplements are unstudied, and as a result, any prediction is based off little than what I mentioned above. So, asking "Will I adjust?" is impossible to predict, particularly considering the gravity of your disease.

I wasn't aware that depression and OCD are a disease Mullet Soldier. I believe they are on the bottom of the list as far as mental illness is concerned. Talking to my pharmacist sounds like a good idea though. thanks.

Not entirely sure why you would take offense to your conditions being called a "disease." It was strictly a biological term:

I have ADD, and I readily concede it is a disease as such - a symptom or set of symptoms manifest from biological dysfunction. Not negative connotations attached, here.

If you have anxiety issues then you need to steer clear of stimulants. They are the LAST thing that you need when dealing with anxiety and depression. I personally cannot take them.
