how much neuroleptic is enough?

Posted by Christ_empowered on February 8, 2021, at 19:12:31

personally, I take Abilify. usually, its OK, as neuroleptics go. lol. in all seriousness, though, at 20mgs/day I'm at I think a high(ish) dosage, and wondering...

could I possibly jump down to 15? 10, even?

I might be able to get in with a new to me psychiatrist. maybe. if it happens, I want to have some talking points, ready to go.

thing is...severe low dips are more of a problem than upswings and/or paranoia, psychosis. the low dips are frequent, but its the very, very bad ones that bring out the full on distress...

but if any neuroleptic is up too high, don't low dips become more frequent? or no?

and if I am a good candidate for a bit of a reduction, should there be...something...there to cushion the blow? i am prescribed a low dose of gabapentin. not my favorite thing, gabapentin, but if I reduce the neuroleptic, would increasing the gabapentin a tad be useful?

no eps, no td or anything, btw. after over 10 years on aripiprazole, that is something to be thankful for, of course. :-)
