Abilify for anxiety? Anybody? Buehler?

Posted by finelinebob on January 30, 2006, at 21:31:57

Ok, long story short. SSRIs make me ill, had a grand lil' manic episode on zoloft once tho. Wellbutrin makes me psychotic. TCAs (nortriptyine) help(s). Clonazepam helps. Then, after a huge, huge crash due to PTSD my pdoc prescribed Zyprexa and my depression AND anxiety pretty much vanished. Too bad my triglycerides shot up to 900. So, switch to Lamictal and now while my mood is well managed, my anxiety ain't.

The story right now: new city, new pdoc (anyone know Gallo in NYC?). He says classic Bipolar Spectrum -- stay with the nortrip, 2mg/d of clonazepam, sticking with the lamictal for now but he insists on getting me on an atypical antipsychotic. Given my response to Zyprexa, he's putting me on Abilify -- which is supposed to be the least likely in the class to mess with your bloodsugar.

So that's my cocktail: 100mg Nortrip, 2mg Clonazepam, 150mg Lamictal, and eventually 10mg of Abilify. What are people's repsonses, opinions, etc about Abilify? Anyone else on anything like what I am?
