hi. thanks for your thoughtful replies, btw. and dont worry about punctuation and such. i really appreciate some input.

ok. 20mgs/abilify is a bit above my dream dose of 10 mgs, a tad above the old standard dose of 15mgs, but (thankfully...) below the vegetable-making 30mgs i was on --forever-- .

to be fair, 30mgs helped agitation. and some of the vegetating was psychosocial, some of it was un(der)-treated depression, etc. so i dont want to come down too, too hard on good ole aripiprazole. having said that...

i think i do need to get some funds from my loving parents and get over to another expert, get a review. the clinic is...not the happiest place on earth, the receptionist makes snarky comments, blah blah blah.

olanzapine gave me akathisia back in the day. i think i just thought 'symbyax!' because its been tested and researched, etc., and there's probably some sort of guess on how it works to keep the crazy/madness/sadness at bay.

but, now that i think about it...maybe something simple, cheaper...low dose of perphenazine for --very-- occasional use, maybe? id have to couple it w/ a micro-dose of gabapentin, because i really am the reigning king of akathisia and neuroleptic dysphoria.

blah. maybe its time to leave the clinic. i dont know. i get the sense they're big fans of depot shots, high dose neuroleptics, depakote...for everyone. my lil cocktail seems to be something of an exception to the rule...

and im (sadly) wondering if perhaps that proves the rule (public/community mental health clinics as agents of social me captain obvious...).

thanks for the replies. how are you doing?
