however this has not been working. She still has very clear and destressing voices in her head. We are due to have an emergency appointment with her doctor this afternoon. Does anyone have experience of abilify not working,? it may be that she hasnt been on the 30mg long enough (only 2 weeks) but prior to that she has been on lower strengths for approx 3 months. My main question is, does anyone find that while they are on this drug, it could work better alongside something else. She was previously on olanzapine which did work but made her health bad and put on alot of weight, so we dont want to go back to that.
Hi I hope you have resolved your issue by now just wanted to say I was anorexic but ability sure cured that problem. I too have thoughts going through my head. Not audible but as though they usually remain in background but under stress come to foreground. The reason I am responding is because I have been prescribed so many meds as I am 46 w schizoaffective disorder and recently I was prescribed a low dose of haldol and that knocked out the thoughts I felt but had to stop due to side effects. Now I have been prescribed prolixin. As for weight gain some drs prescribe topamax which often helps. Best wishes:)
