Psychiatrist 's  Response
As the previous psychiatrist correctly pointed out Arip does not prevent pregnancy, you have to discuss with your psychiatrist on moving to a safe medication for conception and risk-benefits involved. All the best

Dear Richi
Oliza and Arip MT are belong to same group of medication and commonly used for the treatment of schizophrenia.
Arip MT is given to you for the same illness for which Oliza was given.
No, Arip MT does not affect or stop woman being pregnant. However if you are planning for it, better discuss with your doctor.
