Hi all - My doc recently put me on Abilify - started at .5 mg gradually up to maintenance dose of 5 mg. I've been on it for about 2 weeks and am not having any troubles tolerating the medication except that I am hyper as all hell, which, having suffered from depression and the accompanying bone-crushing fatique for so long, doesn't really seem like a problem for me. I'm just wondering if this is going to be a permanent thing or if it's just me getting used to the medication. Has anyone else had this experience? I literally cannot sit still - forget watching anything on tv that lasts longer than 15 minutes. Again - not complaining, just wondering. Thanks!
Jaytea posted a topic in Bipolar Spectrum Disorder - The Pole DanceI have a lot of energy b/c I'm manic and have been trying to find effective ways to use it up. My OCD is kicking in as well with this bout of mania and I'm doing a lot of repetitive motions and I have a lot of thoughts/words cycling through my mind over and over again. How do you guys direct your excessive energy? I am having trouble concentrating on anything and I feel like I'm out of my tree. I see my tdoc in 2 hours, just talked to my pdoc on Saturday, and had a med adjustment after our talk. I also recently took a Klonopin in hopes that it will calm me down a bit. I don't want to be hyper and disjointed in my therapy session today. I feel like I am wicked annoying when I act this way and hate it!
