> my depression is severe. but, taking an anti-psychotic just seems wrong.
Abilify, like other drugs, is nothing more than a chemical substance with certain biological properties. It is us who attempt to categorize a drug by pigeon-holing it into a very narrow characterization by using a label.
Does it seem wrong to use valproate, an antiepileptic drug (AED) to treat bipolar disorder? Same thing.
Judge Abilify by its therapeutic potential and side-effect profile, not by its name.
I don't know that Abilify is a good drug for you. I am not recommending that you try it. However, I am not recommending that you don't.
Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
