Pdoc telling me stories

I switched from Zyprexa 10mg to Abilify. My pdoc said Abilify was more potent so he was only going to prescribe 5mg. I’ve been on the Abilify just over two weeks. I’m having occasional hallucinations. This evening while watching the 5:30 news, I felt mildly anxious for about 10 minutes. Then I heard my cell phone ring in the bedroom. The only problem is my cellphone is in my shirt pocket in the livingroom.
Monday I’m going to get an appointment with a new pdoc, and maybe he can help. What do you all think?

5mg of Abilify won’t touch psychosis.
10mg is the minimum dose for psychosis control.
Yeah maybe you should get a second opinion.

Also Abilify is less potent than Zyprexa according to Wikipedia, Zyprexa is as potent as Risperdal:

“In a 2013 comparison of 15 antipsychotic drugs in schizophrenia, olanzapine was ranked third in efficacy. It was 5% more effective than risperidone (4th), 24-27% more effective than haloperidol, quetiapine, and aripiprazole, and 33% less effective than clozapine (1st).”
