Kinda stable on seroquel. But negative symptoms kick my ass - should I risk switching to abilify?

Abilify didn’t work out for me.

Does the abilify help with motivation?

I can work so I guess so. Not like being hyper or anything. I am calm but do stuff in a normal pace.

Doctors including mine, are more concerned with treating positive symptoms successfully.
Your psychiatrist may be reluctant getting you off of Seroquel.

I really don’t blame him.
Switching meds may lead to disastrous results.
It did for me.
Switching from Risperidone to Vraylar sent me into a psychotic break from Reality.

If seroquel is helping everything else, someone’s a second antipsychotic can be prescribed for the springs that med doesn’t help… I’m talking seroquel and haldol currently to cover more of my symptoms… I was taking seroquel, Risperdal, and prolixin, but now just seroquel and haldol. Maybe ask abouit that?

Yeah I also take depixol. It is good for the delusions. Question is could I cope only on the depixol? Probably not I reckon and not sure if I want to risk it.
