My doctor agreed to raise the dose to 60 mg if necessary. She's also open to augment with other drugs and even mentioned the possibility of adding vyvanse, though she admitted she doesn't know if it's safe and is going to study more.

I went to 60mg/day despite having a great BP response at 30mg and I've regretted it since severe depression started. I'll never know if that would have happened if I'd stuck at 30mg but I'd have at least felt better about following the guideline more :/

I love the smell of Abilify in the morning. The smell, you know that chemical smell. Smells like victory. Some day this war's gonna end...
