Hello,

Im new here. Has anyone heard of aripriprazole and/or if you've been on it?

I currently take 15mg a day and was wondering how it affects the liver?

Doctor has advised that I stay on this for life, which im disappointed about.

I have tried risperadone, olanzapine, amisulphride, and nothing compares to this drug, hardly any side effects (no weight gain).

I'm 18 by the way, and started with psychosis at the age of 15

thanks

oh man. ooooh man. abilify. i was one of the first to try it.

5mg, s'cool no problems.
10mg. okay im sleeping like 4 hours a night.
20mg. i was awake for 96 hours STRAIGHT. i wasnt even sure who i was.

i suffer more with the manic side of things than depressive so it was just waaaay too stimulating for me. i also needed the toilet a lot.

would never go back on it.
