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!
