I tapered the dosage until I relapsed, then titrated back up to the dosage that I felt best at. For me, Abilify serves as both an adjunct antidepressant and an anti-manic mood stabilizer. Once I attain remission, I might try to back off to 10mg.
> was wondering if you could talk about the Abilify and how you settled on 20mg. What sort of experimentation did you do?

> I know abilify is tricky and works differently at different doseages, but are you using it as an a/d adjunct or a mood stabilizer? Did you test different dosages, and how did your subjective experience change as a function of that?
