I started at 7,10 then 15 mg a day,the ability of Abilify to lessen then intensity of my emotions,but... every emotion!!! Which proved difficult when indulging in risky behavior,feelings of guilt,remorse,shame, should be felt ... don't u think??? I am also on Effxor and dextro-amphetamine ,Trazdone, recently tried Sapris, and I have to say the effect was intense,much like me on Xanax,Anger and negativity took over,increased energy. My doc, is very curious about me and the possibility of reverse effects of these drugs... It's very interesting,if anyone has experienced anything like please let me know , Tx very much!TFC
