Congratulations on finding what was wrong. I have used lamictal. I started out with 25mg and titrated up towards 200mg. 200mg is the ideal dosage for most people. If you research you will find that anything over 200mg is rather useless. As far as the Abilify is concerned I cannnot comment on it because I have never taken it. I have tried Geodon, Risperdal and Seroquel and I have to say that Seroquel is is best for both Manic and Depressive episodes in Bipolar I or II. It says so on the Seroquel website. Seroquel is the only approved antimanic medication approved for depressive episodes. I don't take the medication anymore because it made me too sleepy. I am now taking an anti-depressant which seems to work better. (I am bipolar by the way). I am taking a low dose of elavil which is good because most anti-depressants cause manic episodes with those who are bipolar. Best of wishes with your future.

GoodLuck ;)
