daisy131864 Posted September 29, 2011 Share Posted September 29, 2011 i am totally new here. have been lurking for some time, but finally got the nerve to post. i am a trainwreck of all kinds of anxiety (GAD, OCD) and some mood issues (probably bipolar ii- my pdoc never tells me, she just gives me the meds she thinks i need). i just started increasing my abilify- I am breaking pills like crazy trying to get to that 10 mg dose (I am currently on 8 mg). we are titrating super slow b/c of my sensitivity to medication. my question is, how long does it take the side effects to go away? i have a sort of drunken feeling in the morning and feel like my equilibrium is all off since increasing only 1 mg. i also feel sort of out of it, and a tad depressed- no motivation or energy. i also am weepy- like the slightest thing will make me want to cry. i should add on here i'm uber stressed about my upcoming wedding as well. i tend to rapid cycle, so i'm wondering if that's the abilify not taking care of the depression side of things or what. does anyone have any positive success stories with abilify? any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks!
