I am currently on 40mg of Cipralex. Lately it has not been working as good as it has been. My doctor wants me to start a low does of Abilify. I am not comfortable with this as it is an antipsychotic. I do not have any psychosis. Can anyone give me some advice?
I took Abilify along with my Lexapro ( U.S. equivalent) for many years with very good results. I wasn't psychotic either... my doctor prescribed it because it boosters the effects of your antidepressant and works in it's own way to help alleviate depression/anxiety.
From my experience I would have to say don't let it scare you. You really should consider giving it a try.
If you have specific questions or concerns please post again, okay?
