Hi doctor could you tell me Abilify (aripiprazole) medicine with 15mg can use or can't use for the patient of Parkinson's disease?

In brief: Need expert

In general, so-called "atypical" medications such as Abilify (aripiprazole) are likely to be safer to use for people with pd than standard versions of these meds.
But it is a delicate balancing act because they all counteract, in some degree, and pd meds. This is a situation where an expert in the use of both meds will be helpful: a psychopharma/psychiatrist with a close working relationship to a neurologist.
