    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I saw pdoc for an emergency appt and she increased the Abilify by having me take 5mg in the am to stop the voices and the paranioa and added lunesta for sleep when needed. Hopefully I get the meds soon. Its driving me crazy. I am trying everything as a distraction to stop and some of it is not so healthy but it does stop temporarily.

    Hope the meds help. The voices freak me out, so I feel for you. Did pdoc warn you about the really nasty taste you are going to wake up with after taking the Lunesta. I never found a good fix and the altoids pdoc said to chew didn't cut it. It had to just wear off. Didn't know if ya knew. Take care and don't do anything harmful.

    Big hugs, Angel
