> I've been typing you responses for about an hour and I keep erasing them because I see they are way too long and lecturing. I'll just keep it simple.

> I've been taking them in low doses for 10 years. Even the low doses and the safety of the new antipsychotics did not protect me from their longterm damage. I'm almost weaned off now and wishing I had never gone down that road. I cringe when someone else is just starting down that path.

I'm not sure Abilify is a great mood stabilizer either. I did great on Wellbutrin/Effexor comobo (even though I hated the short half life of Effexor). I also did great on Lexapro 10mg (except for the extreme bladder/ureathra pain).

I'm thinking of either trying a small dose of Lexapro - 5mg to see if it causes bladder problems OR trying the Effexor/Wellbutrin combo again.

I'm frustrated with my doc. I didn't feel aggitated or ragefull BEFORE I took Abilify. I just can't chalk my explosive fits (I've had a few) to akathesia! And there is only so much benedryl a person can take.

The only good thing so far about Abilify is the sleep.

Ugh! I'm not sure there is a mood stabilizer for me!
