im blessed with a modest, safe lifestyle. i have good family relationships. few friends, but...they weren't really friends, anyway. and...

im actually really, truly impressed by how well 20mgs/Prozac is working for me. I also take 20 mgs/Abilify. i've been on a DIY Orthomolecular mix for the better part of 10 years.

for me, the big deal is that i can take Abilify and not something like zyprexa or clozapine. nothing against those drugs if you need them, but...

thanks to a stable lifestyle and (I think) Orthomolecular, i take a somewhat higher than average dose of Abilify, plus 20mgs/Prozac. this combination more or less gets the job done, no major adverse effects, so TD, no EPS, minimal dysphoria from the Abilify, etc.

im clearly not any sort of expert, but i can relate to how lifestyle changes, supplementation, etc. can help make the mental probs easier to treat, even if...treatment is still required, possibly indefinitely.

i think talking to your doctor about a gradual switch over to a cleaner, possibly safer drug might be a good idea.
