Hi ACE

10mg Abilify was far too much. Unless you're acutely psychotic or manic you should start at a much lower dose.

>I needed two IV doses of Cogentin (man that stuff is good) to stop it it was so uncomfortable.

You liked Cogentin a lot?

>My next move is 1mg Stelazine

Low doses of trifluoperazine (Stelazine), haloperidol (Haldol, Serenace) and similar neuroleptics can sometimes be helpful for anxiety in the short term but the risk of TD is high in the long term. Akathisia is very common with high potency neuroleptics. Take care. Why not just try a (much) lower dose of Abilify?

>some hospitalised people go up to 80mg.....

That would be very uncommon these days, although such high doses were used in the past.
