How long did it take for abilify to work?

Can it take months? Just curious if we gave it enough time 3 months

Hi , my sons been on Abilify 25mg for about 3 years now . He still has symptoms but much more manageable . He does not work , not studying , still isolated and trying so hard to sue his psychiatrist . we lowered his dose a few times and each time he got much worse . So yes it helps him but does not eliminate all symptoms . I believe it took around 4 months as they kept adjusting his dosage . How is your loved one feeling with it ?
