I am mad at Health Canada

They won’t let us import US meds and wont approve any new meds like Caplyta and not even older meds like Vraylar.

I know I cant do anything anyways. Someone here said to talk to our mayor but I dont think that works here.

Amisulpride is a good med. I don’t know why North America don’t approve it

I would think you would have to talk to someone higher up than your mayor to get drug approval for your country.

My pdoc offered to switch me to Vraylar but I was concerned about my share of the cost since I don’t think there is a generic. I might try switching some day. I wonder if Vraylar raises blood sugar like Abilify does…

Abilify is already one of the aps with least side effects according to that website.

When I read surviving schizophrenia I believe abilify was listed under the fewest amounts of side effects

Think it raises prolactin. And causes akathesia. The only thing it’s really prone to under the major effects. And I didn’t get either of those things

Abilify is used to decrease prolactin.

Ok I have it confused

But I know I scored it all and concluded myself abilify had the least side effects

Found the book too

Abilify is good but it says it’s not as effective as haldol

They tried me on 5mg to do this, but it had no effect
