Comment:
I am bipolar and it was under control for many years, but recently became severely depressed. My doctor added Abilify, starting with a small dose, working up to 10mg/day. After about 5-6 weeks, I could really feel the difference. I could get out of bed in the morning again, wasn't so lethargic and morose, and had a positive attitude again, where before the Abilify I had begun to feel that i ... Show Full Comment
