Colleen,

I'm glad that things are working out OK. With all of the medication problems reported here, it is always nice to hear about the successes!

I'm seeing a Neurologist tomorrow. I do have to say the headaches aren't as bad, but that could be becuase my pdoc gave me a prescription of Vicodin. So I'm doing much better and functioning, able to join the family activities and going to work. I'm not feeling desperate. It is interesting that a low dose of Vicodin really help my moods. My pdoc said that he has read that this is true and if I keep the dose constant and not raise it and it is working then I should take it. This really surprised me. Anyway -- the Abilify is working thank God.

My pdoc say it might take up to a month for it to work. I asked for an increase in dose, but for 3 months I've had severe headaches and he doesn't want to many drugs to interfere with the MRI that I'm having Monday. I'm just so frustrated becasue I can't function well and I'm very depressed to the point of almost being suicidal. I tried Geodon, which worked great except it caused to many axities in my and I was jumpy all the time, but thinking clearly. I was really bummed. I hope this new drug works for I'm very desperate.
