Abilify worked 4 great me @ the beginning w/ my Celexa. However, 10 months & 50 lbs later, I had enough. From a size 8 to a size 16. No diet,no exercise,no controlling of your eating habits seemed 2 help. The cravings were insatiable. I was depressed every time I looked in the mirror or was requested 2 be active outdoors while no one understood the psychological damage the weight gain induced. ... Show Full Comment

This was the extra lift I needed to make me feel normal. I take Wellbutrin also.However, since I'm on a fixed income, $900 for 30 pills is out of sight. Even with insurance, $417 for 30 pills makes me feel that perhaps they contain a little gold dust!

This medicine is overpriced and makes it hard for me to breath. I take 10mg of this a day. Weight gain and no sex drive. Feel worthless because of this medicine. Doctor said this the best medicine out there.

Comment:
Abilify is a miracle! I have taken it for a year, increased from 5 to 7 mg 3 months ago. No more suicidal thoughts and a much more positive attitude in general. No weight gain, which I attribute to decreased eating due to decrease in depression. I also take venlafaxine, trazadone for insomnia and amphetamine salts.
