Hello!

I've had DP for about 7 months now and i want to get rid of it. I have been on 225mg Effexor for 6 months, which has successfully reduced my anxiety but my dp won't go away.

I have atypical autism and recently got an OCD diagnosis, which is why i'm thinking about trying Abilify.

I have read about Abilify on other sites and it's supposed to be good at "removing" weird, unwanted thoughts. From what i've heard, Abilify for DP only works if your DP is caused by a mental disorder. Which kinda suits me since i have two of them.

Has anyone here with autism and DP tried Abilify? How did it work for you?

I used Abilify when for a while when doctors thought I was sufffering Psychosis, it had no effect for me as it was not the case. I would speak to a medical professional first.
I see. Perhaps your DP/DR was not caused by a mental disorder then.

I've seen many write that Abilify will only work if your DP/DR is caused by a mental disorder and i'm quite sure that my DP is caused by my autism since i have had periods of DP since i was 12.

I'm gonna talk to my doctor and see what she thinks.
