@Magicfish I was lucky and with a very good doc so I found the optimum medication in 3 months. I wan say that over time ie 1.5 years symptoms have gotten better in starts and stops but I’m still severely impacted

It can take from minutes to months. It’s very individual and depends on what effect of the meds you’re thinking about. Personally, my hallucinations went away within hours or days and my delusions went away after months. My mood stabilized in minutes/hours.

It took me about 20 years before finding the right med combo.
Yes it can take that long!

I am on a strong dosage of Abilify and it really helps for the positive symptoms. I cannot say whether it is the right med for me but it surely is the best that I have tried. It is now almost 8 years for me since my diagnosis.
