Hi.

Not me.

Lack of efficacy and adverse effects.

I haven't tried brexpiprazole, but cariprazine was better than aripiprazole. I noticed no side effects from it, and it was slightly energising. I took up to 3 mg, but 3 mg was not better than 1.5 mg. I discontinued it because I wanted to try something else and I wanted to appease the doctor who felt more comfortable with fewer medications.

My adverse effects from Abilify were (eye) accommodation disorder and hypersalivation. I think I was taking 20 mg.
