Brief Answer: you may take it Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query. I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through. You have stated that you are on abilify klonopin and trihexyphenidyl and I assume that you are having psychosis. In psychosis the problem with attention and concentration are very common. Many of my patients have come up with the similar query and i have advised them that they may take focus formula with attention factors ( brain suppliments). There are no major interactions but the efficacy is doubtful. Youbcan still try that out. The other option which you can discuss with your psychiatrist is taking methylphenidate 10mg daily during college hoirs and this will improve the attention as well. Hope I am able to answer your concerns. If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you. If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback. In future if you wish to contact me directly, you can use the below mentioned link: bit.ly/dr-srikanth-reddy Wish you good health, Kind regards Dr. Srikanth Reddy M.D.

Brief Answer: In 1-2 weeks Detailed Answer: Hello I advise my patients to take a it for a few weeks and it should show improvement in 1-2 weeks. If it is showing no improvement by the end of 1 month then I advise them to discontinue it. But keep your treating psychiatrists informed that you are adding up this herbal preparation along with the primary medications. he efficacy is doubtful as very few of my patients have reported improvement with this combination while they started on their own. I personally dont prescribe my patients this option. You may give a try for a few weeks and look for the improvement. regards Dr. Srikanth Reddy
