Hello, (sorry for any bad English)
I first took abilify 20 days ago. 2 days after that i could not see as i used to. I called my doctor he says he is not aware of this symptom. I went to a doctor to check my eyes yesterday and he told me i have myopia. I have 1.2 at the left eye and 1.5 at the right. Before all this i was fine. Everything was clear - i didn't have myopia. Do you think i will recover?
Thanks for your answer :)

I really believe we are missing the mark on my 8 year old son. He has been sick'like since he was 4 months old. He is being treated for ADHD/Aspergers/Allergies, but he is NO better. Now, he has petechiae around his eyes.
I'm at a loss. He has been cleared of Pediatric RA. Now what?
