I have been through 4 different anti-depressants and none have really worked. This last one has been a disaster.
What are the names of the meds you've had, how long for each and what response did you get from each one please?
It's difficult answering your question without at least some background.
On Abilify, "prescription ABILIFY can help as an add-on depression treatment, or treatment for Bipolar Disorder (Manic or Mixed) or Schizophrenia in adults.". Are you schizoid or bipolar?
1. FDA Approved Uses of Symbyax
Bipolar depression, treatment-resistant depression.
4 meds would not meet the description of treatment resistant normally.
Hello, so sorry you are having hard time finding one that works, but unfortunately that's what we have to do sometimes. I take Pristiq. I will be very honest. At first it didn't cut it for me. I was still crying alot, and my little boy was asking why mommy was cwing. ha ha. It's far from funny! I didn't want him to see that all the time, and didn't want to feel that way all the time. My psychiatrist recommended adding Abilify with the Pristiq. This is just my personal opinion and experience,but, it made a gigantic difference in my life for the better, and I stopped the crying all the time, and started to feel normal (whatever normal is) again. I have tried Symbyax in the past and loved it too, but it caused too much weight gain for me personaly. Both good drugs. I would go for the Abilify.Try it and see!!It sure helped me... good luck...
