Effexor XR and Abilify. Started Effexor months ago. Helped depression. Not crying all the time anymore. Started Abilify about 2 weeks ago. Seems to help a little more by bringing about a small sense of sanity and a fleeting feeling of contentment. Will continue to see what happens.

(I cut a 5 mg pill in half)..and have been on the drug only about ten days. I feel a huge difference already. I had trouble getting out of bed and starting my day before, now I am up early and anxious to get t ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was always happy as I remember, but I also felt that I was "not right". I never really told anyone because they would just brush it off, or tell me that I'm imagining things when I tried. When I was 24 everything finally caught up to me. Attempted suicide, but someone found me and took me to the hospital. Obviously I was saved. I was put on Zyprexa 7.5mg. It worked good. But I g ...
