I guess it's used to treat schizophrenia but also bi-polar, does anyone know much about this drug?

I am on olanzapine and I have been told I can change to aripiprazole (abilify) if I want to. Apparently, aripiprazole does not cause diabetes but can cause restlessness and anxiety. Since I suffer fro paranoia, I am wondering if the aripiprazole might make it worse. I don't know what to do.

Sometimes, these questions can only be answered by trial and error, since there is no gurantee you will experience that side-effect (or any side-effects) and even if you did it would not necessarily exacerbate paranoid thinking.

Your doctor knows you and your medical history, presumably... what does s/he recommend?
