Moban for Mental Disorder with Loss of Normal Personality & Reality
Moban has been incredibly effective for me, to the point where I haven't had to be hospitalized in over a decade. The only downside is that I have to take it at night due to potential side effects.

My daughter has been taking Moban and Topamax for her bipolar disorder, and it has done wonders. The life-saving properties of this medication cannot be overstated.

Moban for Mental Disorder with Loss of Normal Personality & Reality
I'm really disappointed that this medication is no longer being manufactured. It was great for my patients who didn't want to deal with the side effects of other antipsychotics, like weight gain.

Moban for Mental Disorder with Loss of Normal Personality & Reality
Do not under any circumstances take this medicine. My mother took it for eight months and is now permanently disabled as a result. She can't eat or drink without a feeding tube and has uncontrollable movements in her head, mouth, and legs. All of this at only 63 years old; she was previously healthy too. This drug ruined her life.
