Hi thanks for the info. does latuda and saphris go by another name. i like the sound of latuda i ideally want none sedating none weight gaining lower prolactin. The NHS have never mentioned these meds. I was considering a private consultation with a psychiatrist would u recommend this? as the alternatives offered by NHS Dr include queatipine and haliperodol!!
The dose of abilify has been increased over the last ten weeks to 20mg I take in the morning I tried taking the dose in the evening with no real change to my sleep pattern and felt more vunerable during the day.
Since changing the medication over ten weeks ago I still feel functionally less well ie able to cope than when on the sulpiride. The psyches think this is because I lack confidence in the abilify and due to the length of time I was on sulpuride. I have been off work almost 3 months and time is precious realistically how much longer should I give this medication so that a) i feel functionally well and b) most importantly feel able to do my work? One thing I have noticed about the abilify is I am more anxious.
i would also like to ask is abilify a commonly used med in the US?
