My Situation


#21

Antipsychotics are drugs. They can have side effects. Abilify is considered to cause the least sedation supposedly.

Thank you, and just so you know I already know this.

I mean I switched to Aripiprazole injection from Abilify pills. :smiley: My pdoc said injection has less side effects. The most perceptible change for me was I sleep less than before. I wake up early before going to the gym. Plus, I’m insensitive to my physical change though, but I think I feel less anxiety. And in cognittions, I saw a research that Aripiprazole elevates patients’ cognitive abilities. But I don’t know if it is actually effective in reality.

Your welcome! And thanks for the compliment! I’m not sure if I would say I’m smart, but if I am smart I don’t know how I came to be like this.

Yes. It’s a good thing that psych meds are drowsy causing or an awful lot of us would never sleep.
