Does Aripiprazole/Abilify cause psychosis

I am planning to switch to aripiprazole /Abilify and would like to know does any one have problems of psychosis with it .It says it is an anti psychotic then why do they have psychosis.
I would like to try with lower dose to begin with and then switch completely .

Hi. Every med affects everyone differently. Talk with your doctor about any concerns you may have.

Some meds unexpectedly make a condition worse instead of better, but it’s kind of unpredictable. There is a DNA test by gene sight that can tell you what you’re likely to respond well to, but it isn’t 100% accurate.

My pdoc and me are considering to either switch to or add abilify. It’s one of the AP I have not been on yet. Please let me know if you have any problems with it. I’m still gathering info on it.

I take abilify and it works to prevent my psychotic symptoms.

It’s my 10th day on it and so far I haven’t felt any different, I still having my psychotic symptoms but it’s still early days yet

It usually takes about a month to 6 weeks for it to work.


Ah okay thanks I was going to ask how long

I’m on Aripirazole (Abilify) 30mg. For me, it only takes away the auditory hallucinations and not the tactile hallucinations.
