going off of Abilify

Posted by Noa on May 23, 2018, at 11:37:22

Hi all. Oldtimer here who hasn't posted in ages.

I'm wondering if anyone has had success going off of Abilify.

I started taking it about 3 years ago, started at 2 mg once a day, eventually increased to twice a day (total 4 mg). For a while it did exactly what I had hoped for---mobilized me and activated me so I was able to face day to day life tasks better. But the effect has worn off a lot.

Further, the side effects are troublesome. I have gained a lot of wait, putting me in what I consider the 'unimaginable' weight range. And my blood sugar has not been good--been diagnosed with diabetes II.

So, I'm thinking I might go off of the Abilify but am terrified of a huge rebound of depression. Plus whatever other withdrawal effects there might be.

So I'm looking for experiences and advice.

Thank you in advance.
