thanks for the link. sorry about your experience with abilify.

The study you linked to reaffirms some of what I've read elsewhere. The risk of TD may be somewhat lower with the "atypicals," but TD is still a very real risk with ongoing treatment.

It is what it is, I suppose. With the Orthomolecular on board, I tolerate the Abilify well, and I don't have TD at this point (always a good thing).

I do get concerned w/ people on Abilify for "off label" indications. My rudimentary understanding of the situation is that Abilify's partial agonism at D2 receptors results in a tranquilizer that can effectively control psychosis like Haldol, but with greater tolerability. Pile a bunch of other psych drugs in the mix, and one can lose the improved tolerability. something like that, anyway.

ok. thanks again.
