sapmich Posted December 4, 2010 Share Posted December 4, 2010 I have been taking 150mg/day effexor xr for depression for ten months. It has helped some, but I feel myself sinking back into depression, and friends are seeing signs of psychosis. New pdoc just started me on Abilify 5 mg ten days ago, leaving the effexor dosage intact so he would only be changing one thing at a time. I have noticed some minor improvements, and don't have any major side effects, but I am wondering how long it might be before I can tell if I am getting any benefits. How long did others wait before going from 5 mg to 10 mg? I would like to hear from anyone who has added Abilify as a booster to an AD, or anyone who wants to share their experiences on Abilify for depression, anxiety, or psychosis.
