Hi, deb here...before I started on Abilify....I was on Zyprexa....5MGs....Because of 9/11 I added lamictal for depression about 5 months ago...I felt better but some psychosis remained...one time in the gym I yelled at a worker because I thought he was talking about me in a mean way...(he swears he wasn't) I was worried about this and the doc an a I increased the Zyprexa by 2.5(MGS) I gained 25pound in about 3 months taking me to 310 lbs(and rising)....when Abilify came out it was supposed to have a favorable weight profile so I tried it for just about 6 weeks...I am now on ten mgs and I keep on hearing horrible things when I am among others(especially strangers) I know I never did anything wrong and I would love to reality test this feeling but I am afraid to....I don't know if I need more Abilify or If it is just not strong enough for me............sometimes I think people can read my lips even in the car or at home....If they can then they know EVERYTHING about me and know that I am good and kind.....If they can't then I told my fears to my family at a restaurant and maybe someone heard me....I love my family very much and plan to be with them for a very long time....I will do whatever it takes to make sure that this happens...I love my family VERY MUCH....
I am seeing the Dr. tomorrow (fri) I don't know if switching back will help matters but I'll let the doc decided that....any comments would be gratefully appreciated.........please wish me luck
