Poll: Are you going to stay on your AP or switch at some point?

I’ve decided I’m going to stay on abilify forever. It’s working for me. It’s not perfect though , but I’ve decided not to mess with the status quo.

  • Stick with my current AP
  • Might switch at some point
  • Will definetely switch

I’m glad abilify works so well for you! I might switch from risperdal at some point; it helps me but it’s so sedating! :’(

I like haldol. It’s got plenty of side effects, but since switching to half shot half oral it’s really helped. I’ll probably be on it forever.

I’ll probably be on Clozaril for life, but I would like to switch off of Latuda because it’s very expensive.

I’m on 120 mg of latuda and 1.5 mg of invega, and it seems to be working. I’ll probably stay on them for the time being

If I need to go on AP again after I wean off, I was considering quetiapine. It has low EPS. However it has anticholinergic effects and I read on wikipedia that possible long term effects of this are dementia, diminished bowel movements, and double vision. I need to check with professionals if the anticholinergic effects are not significant enough with quetiapine cos this is otherwise not a good choice for me.

I might end up switching, but every time I switch AP’s I end up back on Risperidone.

I’ll stay on Abilify indefinitely (as tolerated) or until Nuplazid is approved in Canada (if and when). Then, I will give Nuplazid a try because of its nondopaminergic profile of action.
