I tried 4 aps and I found Risperdal best for positive symptoms. Abilify was best for negative symptoms but I had bad side effects at 25mg like multiple addictions and compulsions.
Is it worth the risk of having positive symptoms and addictions like gambling, hypersexuality and compulsive shopping in exchange for a small improvement in negative symptoms?
I don’t know if 10mg Abilify is enough to stop my positive symptoms because I was on 25mg last time. On aps other than Abilify I stay in bed all day everyday and never go out of my house. I have also have issues with hygiene, bathing once a week with great effort.
Would you take those risks to slightly improve severe negative symptoms?
