I've been on Prozac 20 mg for almost twenty years with only good results except for a sharp decrease in sex drive. My dr. added 2.5 mg ABILIFY and within weeks I was able to have very good orgasms as well as feeling happier and calmer overall. Sadly, I was also starving 24/7 and so have stopped taking it after a ten lb. weight gain. I will really miss it :(

Abilify gives me the upmood to make me get going to work in the morning. To minimize tiredness in the morning, I take lexapro about an hour before going to bed. This morning/night placement of these two drugs gives me mental stability without the tiredness that lexapro normally gives me. Taking lexapro in the morning makes me tired and yawning all day.

Comment:
For the most part it has helped along with Cymbalta, but the side effects out weigh the benefits so I quit taking it. I still get tension in my jaw area and it gives me headaches. I take Trazodone to help me sleep, but still have trouble. After reading some of these other reviews I'm going to cut the dosage down from 10mg to 5mg and see how that works.
