My psychiatrist gave me Abilify to treat depression because my Effexor (300mg per day) was not cutting it. For 12days now, I've been taking 1mg of Abilify per day.

Follow-up from my 2 previous posts:On Abilify 2.5 mg for 3 weeks now and never felt better mentally or physically. Any side effects (slight nausea, some nervousness w/ insomnia) have all resolved. I am now able to take in the morning w/ no problem and feel great all day. Lots of energy and motivation. Have not gained weight. Perhaps my success is due to the low dose, i.e., just enough to be effect ... Show Full Comment

I am completly torn about my treatment with Abilify. While it has worked beautifully, I have gained an average of 6 pounds per month, now up to 50 pounds! I have to make a decision about this soon as the added weight is not good for my health.
