Do anti-psychotics worsen conditions before working

I just began Abilify 3 days ago. It feels like my schizophrenia is worsening. I'm wondering whether this is normal or not. I heard that it worsens conditions because my body is adjusting. So, my question is, do anti-psychotics worsen schizophrenic symptoms before it begins to work?

Re: Do anti-psychotics worsen conditions before working

Well I'm not sure how all the meds work I have only taken a few but I know Prozac was not good for me it seemed like it was gonna work for a few days then my visual and auditory hallucinating got worse and I had minor allergic reactions like red spots and intense itching and it sent me into about a month long psychotic episode which was roughnon everyone therefore I'm not on any medication but I also take poor care of myself and do not do well in social places and still hear and see hints of my life and purpose so maybe I should look into some I hear ability and seraquil work good but I know there are tons of side effects so I don't know
