Does Abilify increases anger and agitation in a person?
4weeks ago My daughter just switched from 4 mg risperdal to 20 mg abilify. I am noticing increased anger and agitation. We did not see this with the risperdal. Should I have her go back to risperdal? She was taken off risperdal due to highprolactin and increased voices
Abilify consists of aripiprazole and it would take minimum two weeks to get desire blood level and more to show response. In your daughter case, she is on this drugs for last four weeks, so better to wait or could give them together and later stop risperdal when she would get response with abilify. Rest consult her psychiatrist.
