Abilify not working out, why?

Hey everyone I’m new here. I am 16 years old and I have schizophrenia. I’ve been taking Risperdal (2mg) and Abilify (30mg, so pretty much on the highest dosage) for 3 months now per day. Why don’t they do anything, except for making me shake like crazy and giving me anxiety? I even lost weight on them. I also have suicidal thoughts. They don’t ease any of my symptoms at all! Does anyone have similar experiences with Abilify?

Definitely not for me!

everhopeful …!!! andrey.!!! aku !!! raghu they all are on abilify ,!!!

for how long you have been taking this medication?

I’ve been taking them for 3 months now

yeah when I first took Abilify - I was much better in like a month but still had some weird delusions for like another 2 months on 5 MG. Now it has been 7 weeks on Abilify injection of 10 mg and I still lose touch with reality now and then but it is minor.

How many mg are you taking?

I take 30mg of Abilify and 2mg of Risperdal

well you seem like you are aware of yourself though and not psychotic?

I am aware of myself but i do hallucinate and have delusions. I can tell when they are happening

yeah so at least you are not out of touch. Just ask your doc if they can find a solution I guess =) just be happy you are fully aware of what is going on.

Have you spoke to your pdoc recently and told them? Personally it took 6 months for my meds to work. But some people argue you should have some response by 3 months.

Yeah now that you say, i guess it helps in that sense, that i can tell.

Yeah just a couple hours ago I told her but she said it’s fine, but i just find it weird. Came to ask if anyone else had the same experience

Why do you always yell (!!!) In replies and …

Typically, we like to leave inactive threads alone and just start a new thread instead. This is different than how some forums are run, but we do it this way because it frequently upsets users to have old topics revived when they are no longer relevant. It can also be frustrating to the person who revived the thread when they don’t get a reply, because the original poster is no longer active or no longer finds the topic relevant. Feel free to start a new thread on this topic.
