> Help! I discontinued my abilify (2mg) 12 days ago because I was feeling good but having a terrible time sleeping. I am also taking Cytomel and Ensam, both of which also cause sleep problems....
> After 9 days off the abilify I crashed. Better sleep but no energy during the day. 3 days back on and I am still a zombie: no energy, having trouble walking around I am so wiped out.
> Anybody else have a similar experience? Nothing else has changed with my meds. Could this really be the abilify? I actually hope so. How long does it take to kick in again.

Have had a similar experience taking only 1mg of Abilify (2mg pill cut in half). Small doses of Abilify can be quite activating and cause sleep problems. In my case I stuck with the my 1mg dose in the morning for over a month now and sleep problems have eventually diminished. Prior to Abilify, I had a two week trial of Emsam but could not tolerate that drug at all even at the lowest dose due to sleep problems. However, Trazodone is a good drug that could help your sleep.

As far as Abilify becoming effective again, per my experience (3 trials) it would always kick in after several days.
