I usually have paradoxal reactions to meds... But Abilify did NOTHING for me. No side effects, no relief of symptoms. My pdoc doesn't even use Abilify anymore since all she's seen is no reactions or negative reactions.

Hope Abilify works for you this time! Maybe our body chemistry is totally different, as in the case of Geodon. ;)

Why did you quit taking Abilify last time?

Last time I stopped taking Abilify because it didn't work and made me ultra-restless. I believed it increased my anxiety issues so I stopped taking it (without my pdoc's approval). Now she has me taking it again because she believes it will HELP the anxiety and the mixed state. Damn! Abilify is about to join Geodon as the Master of the Gates of Hell if this twitching doesn't stop. She could prescribe Inderal or something if she wants me to take his shit.

Anxiety relief, anyone? Helena, it is interesting that your pdoc won't prescribe it anymore, and ocd- it is interesting that you love it and it saved you...

maybe I need some good, old-fashioned Paxil to cure this!

I get along very well with 7.5mg of abilify/day in addition to 300mg/day of lamictal for depression. The abilify is activating for me with little or no side effects. The one side effect at first was inability to stay or get to sleep. That went away quickly. Real good med for me. (I have to pay for them myself. They're quite expensive).

I can actually say that I have much less anxiety on it.  I was taking 20mg a day in the morning.  But it made me crazy manic.  Then I went down to 10mg a day and it hit the nail on the head.  No more anxiety and not too much activation (just a little, but the zyprexa and increased lamictal helps with that).  Hopefully it works for you this time! 8-)
