I know my Pristiq is time release, but not the Abilify(regular not disc melts). when I started adding Abilify almost a month ago; my psychiatrist gave me samples - 1 week of 5's and 2 of 10's. I wasn't sure if the headaches I was getting were because of the Abilify; so he said it was ok to cut the tens in half. Then he also said I could take 1/2 of a 10 and every other day start taking whole ones if I felt ready. The headaches did stop and now I take a 10 every day. I think if you want to stay on 5mg ;and you are could at cutting them, you could save $ by getting 10's. My regular MD thought this is a good idea & he gave me more free samples of both drugs! I'm going to ask the manufacturers for money off too. It never hurts to ask. Hopefully helpful, sharonH
