Importance on an anti-psychotic?
I have been off of mine for 2 months now due to Eps from Abilify. Since then, I have enjoyed being able to communicate better and use my brain.
But, I have also had an instance of where I was reading in a noisy room and I had this intense urge to just yell at everyone to shut up. Then, today, when giving my kitty cat water (she was around), I had this intense urge to hit her. These urges only lasted a moment, but they were intense. And bothersome.
Also, I do get excited and hyper, which is great, but then I feel a little ill. I did have depression last week.
Anyway, is this because I am not on an anti-psychotic? Sounds like it to me, but I wanted your opinion. Especially about the feeling I had to hurt my kitty cat.
I would love not to go back on one, it only made me feel dull and un-emotional. But, if I don't even out, I guess I need one. Who knows.
What exactly does the anti-psychotic do?
