I am on a TCA and Lithium for bipolar (II) depression. We tried several ADs and combinations without real success. Now my pdoc added Abilify as a second mood stabilizer to Lithium. When does Abilify kick in and how much (dose range) is needed as mood stabilizer. In the prescribing information 15mg/d is the max. dose as adjunct to ADs. My pdoc says he has patients who need up to 30mg/d. What are your experiences?
