Comment:
This medication literally saved my life. I would have to tell myself the reasons I had to live EVERY DAY. I have become a recluse. I knew I would die if I didn't get help.

Comment:
I am bipolar and have had low grade depression since menopause two years ago. I take lithium and trazodone (for sleep). I took 2.5 mg of Abilify for 10 days and then increased to 5 mg. At 5 mg. I felt great, expansive, a sense of well being I haven't had for years. The only problem is that I had trouble sleeping, and I feel it kicked me into a mild hypomania.
