> the abilify thing is true

I guess that leaves you in the difficult position of having to find an effective medication before you can try to discontinue the Abilify. Of course, the paradox is that there might be no medication that will be able to get past the DA receptor agonist actions of Abilify and demonstrate a therapeutic benefit. I would go with the high dosage of Seroquel and begin to taper the Abilify if the Seroquel is even moderately effective. Removing the Abilify will be an experiment. In actuality, it might be that you can then justify combining the Seroquel with moderate dosages of either Risperdal or Invega if you feel that Seroquel alone is inadequate.

I know, I know...

I am pushing a certain drug combination for you to try. In real life, I have seen 3mg of Risperdal work magic when combined with low dosages of Seroquel. If I hadn't witnessed this for myself, I would not recommend the treatment so strongly.
