      It's helping me but I had to switch to taking it at night because it mixed bad with other meds an made me sleepy all day

      Abilify helped me so much when I was on it! I had no weight gain, and no hallucinations!

        @LilG did it help with anxiety?

      I have been on Abilify for a year as of last month. It has helped tremendously with my mood overall. It is currently preventing me from relapsing into another manic or depressed state. I would say that the side effects are worth the benefits (for me, at least).

      Does it help with anxiety? That is my biggest problem

      It took almost exactly 2 weeks for me. It was a struggle to adjust to, but really worth it. I've worked up to 20mg that I take at night.

        @Laresa I’m on 2mg 😳

        • blueflovver

          @Meliss don't worry, 2 mg is a good starting dose, I'm on 4 mg and it works perfectly for me. I was on 20 mg years ago and it gave me TD oof i don't wish that shit on anyone. It's better to keep it as low as possible. If 2 mg doesn't work after a week it should be bumped up to 4-5, talk to your psych! Also depends what you need help with, is it for depressive symptoms or psychotic symptoms? It definitely helps faster with depressive than psychotic imo.

      Is great for me. I also take cymbaltas and rexalti and the combo is amazing and keeps me in a healthy place. I get depressed but it's a healthy range, it's bearable!

        @DrowningQueen21 it’s been a week. What dose are you on?

      I noticed very early on! Within the first two-three weeks I noticed a change. And when I forget to take my meds/don't take them for a week or whatever, once I start taking them again the abilify seems to kick in right away (a few days). It's one of the best medications I've personally been on. It boosts Paraxotine for me, and it works VERY well. Good luck with it, dear!!! 💗
