  1. Hi My wife has been in the process of changing from Risperidone (1mg morning and 3 mg evening) to Aripiprazole. Because she had high Prolactin levels. With disastrous results. At the moment she has disturbed sleep at night, the voices keep her awake. Has unusual behavior, does not want to socialise or leave the house and spends a lot of time in a trance-like state in discussion with the voices. We gradually introduced the Aripiprazole and reduced the Risperidone over a three month period, at present she is on 20 mg of Ariprazole in the morning and 2mg of Risperidone at night. We are in contact with the psychiatrist who says we must give the medication time to work. But I am at my wits end my wife is impossible to live with. I would be interested in your experiences and opinions. She was reasonably normal before the change of medication, she had voices but we could manage our lives.
