Does have a laxative effect but not when taken with calcium. Still trying to find perfect dose. Please try it, I still need medication though, depends on your anxiety levels.

I didn't have depression, anxiety, or any mood disorder; apart from the hair-pulling, I was completely healthy. After stopping Abilify cold-turkey (my doctor at the time told me this would be okay; she was WAY w ... Show Full Comment
