Default Asperger with psychotic features

I beg to ask for your help for my best friend who has Asperger syndrome and is living outside US with a personal interest in maths. He suffered from what was diagnosed as persecutory delusions+Asperger , and have been stable for 4 years now and completely normal but on every conversation i understand his suffering that he can't think due to medication,for the last year he has been on Abilify 5 mg.His illness can be summarized in the following document he had written for his psychiatrist he sent me this morning :
The disease appeared gradually, here are its key steps:
Phase 1: It started with reference ideas that make delusion adhere like cement: brick by brick. It is only a world where the impossible becomes possible progressively by projecting my dreams and fantasies in it, forcing it to agree with reality that contradicts it objectively.

Phase 2: It was followed by a depressive period: I spent all my day lying almost never going out, I remember a detail perhaps insignificant, is that I found my shoes too heavy to walk with them. It was in this phase that I was building a new mental referential with its characters and logical mechanisms all in complete isolation in my dorm room having lost all my friends, because I was no longer attending classes.
Phase 3: The ideas of persecution came only after the depressive phase and are a prediction in this delusional system of the reaction of others of my actions or things that I said in discussions with people on private conversations, perhaps, it is a defense mechanism against an imagined danger.
Questions:
-Has anybody stopped Abilify 5 mg ?
-On what time scale ?
-How did you manage your new life without medication ?

Hello Sarah: I cannot be of help with regard to your questions. However I noticed this is your first post here on PC. So... welcome to Psych Central.

Since you're here for your friend one forum, here on PC, that may be of interest to you would be the Partners of People & Caregivers forum. Here's a link:

The Psychiatric Medications forum may also be one to take a look at:

I hope you find PC to be of benefit.
