Hey, I switched from 1mg risperidone to 2mg Abilify a few days ago and have been unable to sleep, even with ambien. I was up for around two days when I finally got 2-3 hours sleep today.
Is this insomnia fairly normal for abilify? Does the insomnia go away in your opinion? I switched from risperidone due to always feeling sedated, so this is kinda the opposite. Very frustrating!
I don’t see my nurse practioner for a while, so gonna try to call her tomorrow to see if I should switch back. Maybe try abilify in the future with something besides ambien for sleep since it’s not working.
Oh, and my symptoms are fine, I’ve experienced no changes since switching. Any advice or info is appreciated. Thanks!
