In reply to Luvox or Abilify Making Me Tired?, posted by MadBull on May 24, 2011, at 9:57:55
I take 50mg of Pristiq daily. It doesn't help much, but I'm better off with it than without it. Per my pdoc's instruction I started taking Abilify today, in a sample dose of 2 mg.
I'm totally wiped. I feel exhausted and can hardly keep my eyes open. A nap at this point is probably unavoidable.
This effect is the opposite of what my pdoc suggested. He said that Abilify would be "enervating". Instead I seem to be getting sedated.
On the other hand, my first dose was this morning. Could it be affecting me this rapidly, or could this exhaustion be something else (perhaps even a placebo effect)?
Thanks for your time,
