A few months ago I met up with a student mental health doctor in hopes that I can come off medication. I don’t want to do it on my own. She said no but after consulting a psychiatrist they said that the 5mg Abilify is not much of a high dose so I can consider coming off
BUT… there is a catch…
I have to take it consistently for 6 months which I am ashamed to say I was not doing.
They said this because I have an issue with my spending which may be linked to the schiz. I don’t understand how that is related to schiz though. Three months in I still have the same problem however it is on and off.
If the meds don’t control my spending, then i can come off them. if they do i must stay on them.
I always thought spending was a bipolar symptom?
