Im feeling slightly manic/elevated/amped up

I think it’s from benzo withdrawal. Or else the benzo was keeping abilify damped down. I’m not doing anything different externally, but internally I’m completely amped up. Anybody else experience this from coming off benzos?

Yes I did. I had to reduce my coffee intake. I’m back to normal though, it was temporary.

Hadn’t thought about reducing my coffee intake. I’ll consider that if it gets out of hand. Thanks.

I was just tense when I came off Klonopin. I miss that drug.

Hopefully its temporary - Benzo withdrawal can cause some agitation - it does not last forever.

Unless you are feeling the effects of the Abilify without the sedation of the benzo.

Abilify is extremely stimulating.

This is very possible unfortunately.
