Hi, Ms. Thompson! The Abilify will help calm you down but it could take several weeks ~ what's called a fair trial. An anxiolytic like Buspar would help in the meantime but be careful of benzodiazepines (Ativan, Klonopin, Xanax, Valium, etc.) which are addictive and easily abused.
Best wishes, Wildcat
