In reply to Abilify and my continuing experience with it, posted by Alvin on July 12, 2005, at 6:33:29

I have been on 2.5 mg of Abilify for about 2 weeks now and also find it better than 5 mgs. I have been playing with the dose for about a year now. I have been up to 15 mgs.
My experience with Prozac and all of the SSRI's is that they make me feel good for about 3 days and than I crash into irritability,anxiety,rumination etc. So they are either making me hypomanic or the medication builds up in my body and makes it worse. Could be a combination of both. Without a test I don't know and the test would cost way to much to find out. I was never able to split a dose of prozac or any other SSRI in small enough mg to get it right. I am Bipolar II also.
I am currently on 150 mg of Lamictal and increasing the dose from 50 mg to 150 has helped a lot. Even with abilify and Lamictal as mood stabilizers I have not been able to take SSRI's.
If you want to try an SSRI I would start at the smallest dose you can get.
