> My highest dose was 15mg. I also took a lot of lower doses. The lower doses were much easyer to tolerate. The first time I took 15mg for 2 weeks and stoped because of anxiety and masive panic attacks. IE it didn't replace the zyprexa. The last time I took abilify for about 6 months at doses between 2mg and 15mg. 3 months in I decided it was not working, my doc decided it was because I was not taking enough, he said try 30mg. I was in disbelive, and said no! So I took 15 for anouther 3 months and went psychotic. Its taken me a long time to recover from it, more than a year now. This time I'm trying perphenazine, with much beter results. Still need the zyprexa. So its looking like its going to be a mix of the the two. The interesting thing I notice when I quit abilify is that it takes 3 times the time I was on abilify, for the zyprexa to start working again.


I'm just taking little chunks right now. I'm gathering that for you, there was no threshold where the drug flipped over into a calming and sedative effect? Sounds like the higher the dose, the more over stimulated you got.

What an f'ed up conundrum... Abilify actually caused psychosis for you and it's an antipsychotic! That is harsh.

I would take Zyprexa, but I'm very afraid of getting trapped on a med that causes me massive weight gain and intractable sedation, to the point where I can no longer stay awake and move around much.

What is perphenazine? Is it related to Zyprexa?
