My son is currently on Abilify. With some of the insurance changes happening at work, I worry about how I'll be able to afford it going forward. It will be over $500 a month. I was looking on the insurance website and Risperidone would only be about $20 a month. Obviously I prefer the cost of Risperidone, just wondering what experiences anyone had with both. I read some of the posts about Risperidone increasing agitation, aggression, etc. Just wondered if anyone had switched. My son is doing well on Abilify and I hate to think about changing it but I'll go broke spending that much on medications. I'm also curious about appitite side effects. My son's appitite has GREATLY increased since starting abilify which from what I"m reading isn't supposed to happen. I worry about how much that might increase on one that's known to cause an increase?
