      I'm on 30mg of Aripiprazole and get a little restlessness from it, around twice a day and mainly in my legs.

      I find it much better than the previous medication I was on which was 20mg of Olanzapine which gave me a huge appetite and I put on loads of weight.

      It could be worse, I could be on Clozapine and have to get blood tests done frequently to monitor my white blood cell count or other meds that mess with Prolactin and causes men to grow breasts and lactate and testicular shrinking.

      But generally AP meds will allow you to think more clearly, have more focus and prevent further episodes of psychosis, as a voice hearer I think I'll be on them for the rest of my life or until the voice I hear goes away which is doubtful, the meds reduce the volume of them by around 95% which allows me to get on with my life.
