Hallucinating some this afternoon

I was sitting in the easy chair in the living room with the TV set on. It sounded like someone was at the door but it was coming from the window. Then it was coming from the ceiling. I moved to the bedroom and it stopped. It was a little unnerving, but it didn’t upset me.

Since I switched to Abilify last May I have been hallucinating once in awhile and having spells of paranoia. It’s not too bad. I don’t know if I want to up the dose from 10mg. I’ve had a lot of benefits taking Abilify.

Its good that you are benefiting from your medication. I feel the same way in reference to taking clozaril and trilifon, I hallucinate sometimes but its definently not as bad as before

I needed 20mg Abilify to be stable and even then I still had paranoia when watching mexican-colombian mafia series Narcos on Netflix.

Hmm. This is a difficult one.

Me personally, I am happy to have a less effective drug if generally speaking I like it due to reduced side effects etc

I am glad you’re having some benefit for it. Didn’t work well for me as I had a bad reaction to it, but on paper and for a lot of people it’s a good med.
