Second week, now on 10 mg,
Zyprexa withdrawal… headache and stuff. Muscle pain from abilifyn i think.
Dont know yet If its good for me.

I hope abilify works for you. I was on seroquel and abilify. Once I started on abilify I became extremely agitated and had rage outbursts. Since then I’ve switched to Invega. And just recently started taking rexulti. It’s different for everyone. Hopefully you have success with it.

I read abilify is The most used AP.

I made this transition a few years ago.
Had really bad insomnia, but other than that things went pretty well.

Olanzapine 20mg freed me from psychosis completely, but i ballooned about 15kg in a very short time.
Still on aripiprazole.

I see.
Do you like abilify

Yeah it’s good. The most tolerable of them all probably.
For a while I wanted to change it, but my pdoc was resistant so i gave up on that idea.
Keep in mind that some folks take it in the morning and other before bed.
