No!

Not for me.

I took it at 2.5mg, then 5mg, recently to try to help depression, social phobia, and some attention issues. I took 10mg one other time but hit jackpot on side effects. At first, I had a decent anti-depressant and pro-motivational effect. I praised the drug at first. However, several weeks after being on it, the bad side of the drug came about:
Great paranoia
Extreme fear around people
Feeling scared
Dark moods
Marked guilt giving way to suspicious personality
Altered perceptions giving way to mild delusions
Warped thinking
Hyperemotionality
Agitation

I went off it, and these symptoms abated as the drug left my system over 2 weeks.

My dopamine should really not be tampered with. This bad reaction from the drug was presumably due to dopamine excess from Abilify's dopamine agonism.
