In reply to Re: Abilify - What prevents you from taking 10-20mg?, posted by Roslynn on November 24, 2008, at 15:33:34
Scott, have you seen this study: http://www.cnsspectrums.com/aspx/articledetail.aspx?articleid=607
thats what i was looking at. The 10mg a day shows significantly better on PEC score, but worse on negative symptoms. Now, generalizing to other disorders from schizophrenia might not work, but if anyhting i'd htink a lower dose would be required for non-schizo people. Thats how it seemed to work for me: i suffer from insufficient aggression, drive, etc. If that dimension of one's personality is in excess, it can cause problems, and 10-20mg abilify might be good. These higher doses are just numbing, and i think this was the case even at 5mg for me as i believe i have a truly sh*t dopaminergic system. For the agitated forms of anxiety 10-20 might help.
