There is an atypical antipsychotic that my insurance has a deal with the pharmacy on. It’s Abilify. I’m going to ask my dr to let me try it.
Lots of us on Abilify here.
Good luck, Pianogal!
Thanks @OcelotKitty! Abilify will only cost me $20/month. Haldol helps me stay calmer than usual but I’m afraid of getting tardiv dyskinesia
Just remember 10mg is the minimum dose for schizophrenia.
I’m on abilify also, at 22.5 mg. But be careful about weight gain.
I’m on 10 mg of abilify. It works well enough. May it serve it’s purpose for you pianogal.
I didn’t do so well on Abilify. I got worse. It doesn’t work on everybody. Just warning you.
Weight gain is an issue for me. I’ll talk to my pdoc about it
I checked for the highest dose but thanks!
i didnt know abilify caused weight gain
I’m another one who has put on weight with abilify and a significant amount. I wouldn’t want to change medications though, as others I have tried have also put on weight but made me sleep all day.
Abilify caused me to binge eat until I threw up. Every night was like that. Not a super common side effect but it can happen.
Thanks for the heads up!
Abilify has worked wonders for me. However the akisthesia is an issue.
The drug looks great on paper, so it must work well for a lot of people. Worth a try!
Where are there comments on paper that Abilify is good. Is there a source about it?
I’m on Abilify. For me is a very good medication.
