More Information on Schizophrenia Medications
I seriously hope that my insurance company, Medicare, or Medicaid for others will not use this study to justify not covering the more expensive newer drugs. Abilify for me is sooooo much better than all the typical and atypical meds for me. I cannot live without Abilify specially. Please do not take my Abilify away!!!
