So I had a short convo with a new meds prescriber a few days ago:
Long story short, she wants me back on 10mg of Abilify and not my current dose of 15mg.
Her reasoning behind it was because I haven’t been taking the Abilify on a consistent basis as of late, she thinks I should work my way back up to 15mg by taking 10mg to get my system used to the meds again.
I’m kinda leery about all this… It’s not like I completely quit taking the Abilify or anything-- I was just taking the 15mg on work days (which has proved not to be a very wise decision on my part).
Worried the 10mg might not be enough currently, as I still had breakthrough symptoms while on that dose in the past.
Has anybody ever had to restart their meds regimen at smaller doses?
