Has anyone else had trouble getting off abilify? I took 5 mg daily for over 10 years as an add on to my antidepressant. Now the withdrawal symptoms getting off abilify have been miserable. Now I have to start back on 2.5 mg abilify because my depression and anxiety have returned after many years of being stable.
Abilify withdrawal symptoms caused anxiety & depression to return. Have to start back on abilify?

I had the same reaction to withdrawing from 5 mg of Abilify which I took for 3 years. The depression returned with a vengeance. However I am trying again with a slow taper and things are going much better. I am now down to 1 mg a day and feel great. I think my body is adjusting slowly. I believe the key is to taper very slowly!
