Abilify. I’ve been on it for 5 weeks now. No improvement in any symptoms. I was on 2 mg for 2 weeks, 5 mg for 2 weeks, and I’ve been on 10 mg for 1 week. My therapist said it takes minimum around 3 weeks to work, so does that mean I have to wait 3 weeks on the 10 mg? Arghhh
so does that mean I have to wait 3 weeks on the 10 mg?
Yes, at least.
It takes at least 10-14 days for it to reach steady-state in your blood. It may take weeks for it to show any demonstrated effect, as @everhopeful said.
Those are pretty low doses in my opinion. I’m on 20 mg of Abilify.
The earlier doses were just to get my system adjusted to the Abilify.
