He’s starting me at 10mg but I think I’ll end up higher dose later. Good to hear positive.
It can cause major addiction issues. I think it’s crap in a way. It takes you for a boring ride in my opinion and in my case.
But I do have lots of good times but only if I have weed
I take 30 mg of abilify but I also take 2 other antipsychotic meds with abilify as abilify alone didn’t keep me stable and out of the hospitals. (I take rexulti and Zyprexa along with abilify)
I will say though, Abilify did really brighten me up mood wise and stopped some of the more threatening voices and got me out of a long hospital stay. I have been taking it steadily for 13 years minimum at 30 mg per day. I started out at 10-15 mg I believe and my dose got very rapidly increased to 30 mg as they could increase it very rapidly as I was in the hospital.
Good luck with abilify. It’s been good to me. I hope it’s helpful to you too. If you think you need a dose increase, don’t hesitate to discuss it with your dr.
During my teenage years it completely controled both my psychotic and mood symptoms now I take a lot of meds to control all my symptoms but it might help you idk it doesn’t work for everybody
I receive an injection of 400mg of Abilify every 4 weeks and I am okay with it.
