nomi Posted September 23, 2007 Share Posted September 23, 2007 Ease my mind or feed my anxiety, someone, please: After reading that Abilify was introduced to the US only five years ago, I'm a little nervous about the long-term effects of continuing to use the med. It's already working well for me at 10mg and the side effects are mostly easing up, but sometimes I think paranoid thoughts (of course I do, it's one reason I'm taking it ;}) about horrible things happening later. On one hand, I don't want to damage my health if I can help it; on the other hand, I know I have to consider the quality of my life. Is this another case of a med being around for a lot longer in other parts of the world before the US FDA decided to look into it more closely? I'm just looking for something to let me stop worrying about it. It looks like a pretty commonly-used med around here, so obviously I'm not some kind of guinea pig. ;} It would be fantastic to find the right AP on the first try. I've read all the bad experiences of so many of the others and this one looks like a good one for me so far. /nomi Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
