I think I need another increase in meds

Maybe to 10mg Abilify. Or should I give it another few days as I only had the dose increased Thursday

Sometimes abilify can make symptoms more intense for the first few days after an increase. I’m learning this. Give it a week or two to determine if this increase will work. Abilify is stimulating so it’s not the best choice for everyone, but only time will tell.

I probably need to adjust (increase) my Risperdal dose - I had my dose lowered a month ago, I’m rapid cycling.

I would give it another couple of weeks before asking the doctor to raise it more, you just had it raised.

it takes 2 weeks for abilify to reach equilibrium after an adjustment.
