My boyfriend was having full mania. He got abilify injection 5 weeks ago. He did improve a bit but still hypomanic and disconnected from reality. Is it normal it takes so long for him to come back to normal?

I was taking abilify in psychosis and mania. It didn't do anything for me so doctors switched me to invega. But it took them 6 months to realize abilify was not helping.

He used to take Abilify 4 years ago and it worked super well for him. Then he made the mistake to stop. Could it not work anymore?

Abilify works great for me, but everyone is different. Lithium is one of the most effective drugs for long term stabilisation of mania. Ask the doctors to switch him to that.
