I accidentally went a few days without my AP

Oops! I ran out, and had to wait for a refill. I’m fine, didn’t have any withdrawal symptoms, other than a little dizziness and stuff like that, but I started to perceive the world in that weird, unreal way I did before I got on meds. Just a little, I think the APs weren’t fully out of my system yet, but it’s a good reminder that yes, the psychosis is still there, waiting under the surface.

I had talked to my pdoc about going off Abilify a few months back. He said it wouldn’t be a good idea, and I guess he was right. I was concerned that the meds were affecting my productivity, but I’m so much more functional with them that, even if I’m a little dulled by them, it’s worth it to stay on. Now, if only I could get enough sleep, I’d be unstoppable!


You know a strange thing worked for me. I stopped taking pills to sleep and now I sleep. If I take them I can’t sleep at all. Weird. Don’t know if this applies to you. But maybe

Can’t your pharmacy give you a emergency prescription of ap’s for a week or so whilst your waiting for your prescription from your Dr?

You can in the UK, but they don’t like to have to do it!

Sorry to hear that! Hope you can get your AP shortly. Are you only on Abilify?
I know how you feel because I had this in the past!
If you take any supplements along with your AP maybe it would be a good idea if you keep taking your supplements and also exercise more until you get your medications.
