> Abilify was a miracle drug for me, but made me gain a ton of weight. Currently, I use it on an as-needed basis. If I start to get really out-of-control depressed, I take 10mg/day and usually feel better within 2-3 days. Then I go off it before the weight gain starts. This, combined with parnate and lamictal, seems to have kept me out of the hospital for almost 4 years.

Thats great!
Interesting too. My doc initially wanted me to start on 5mg taken Mon, Weds & Fri am. Said it has a metabolite with a very long half life. I've not looked into it. Anyway, there was a big farce
with my script & I ended up with another stating 5mg daily.
