> Abilify is much different. I take 2.5-5.0 mg daily and find it to be an excellent mood stabilizer. It has both tranquilizing and energizing (antidepressant) effects. The only problem is that it exacerbates underlying insomnia, requiring me to take Seroquel (25mg) or Zyprexa (2.5mg) at bedtime.

parnate causes me insomnia, abilify causes me insomnia, when i combine the two -- no insomnia! a good 8 hours and i'm fine

but even on abilify 3.75 mg the insomnia wasn't that bad... only initially. after a while i think i started getting a good 7 hours or so
