Greg --

It's so nice of you to check in. I have to admit I haven't been replying to this board lately due to being busy and I'm also very socially shy.

My pdoc increased my dose to 15mg of Abilify, which worked. It got rid of the parinoia thoughts and voices. For the headaches, I still get them, but my MRI came out OK so I was very glad. I'm seeing a Neurologist tomorrow. I do have to say the headaches aren't as bad, but that could be becuase my pdoc gave me a prescription of Vicodin. So I'm doing much better and functioning, able to join the family activities and going to work. I'm not feeling desperate. It is interesting that a low dose of Vicodin really help my moods. My pdoc said that he has read that this is true and if I keep the dose constant and not raise it and it is working then I should take it. This really surprised me. Anyway -- the Abilify is working thank God.

Thanks for asking -- very nice of you.

Colleen

I asked for an increase in dose, but for 3 months I've had severe headaches and he doesn't want to many drugs to interfere with the MRI that I'm having Monday. I'm just so frustrated becasue I can't function well and I'm very depressed to the point of almost being suicidal. I tried Geodon, which worked great except it caused to many axities in my and I was jumpy all the time, but thinking clearly. I was really bummed. I hope this new drug works for I'm very desperate.
