Medical literature, consultation with physicians, and observation of others.

It is a reasonable guideline, but that's all it is. Some people with depression might need more than 5 mg/day.

I found this on Pubmed/Medline:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24108149

If you want to take the lowest effective dosage of Abilify, start low and titrate upwards if necessary. If you are not psychotic (schizophrenia, schizoaffective, bipolar mania), why not start with 2-5 mg/day? You should know within a week if a particular dosage is effective. I don't know whether or not akathisia is dosage-dependent. You might need to take this into consideration when choosing a starting dosage.

Good luck.
