drowsiness, clouded thoughts and poor concentration. This is my second day and it seems as though I had more energy and motivation to get things done before starting the abilify. I was taking lamictal which actually worked rather well with my depression and unstable mood, but it gave me the rash so I had to stop taking it. Does anyone know of another good mood stabilizer similar to lamictal. I'm thinking of calling my doctor and telling him the abilify is not working for me and should put me on a different mood stabilizer, because my next appt. is not until January 31 and I don't want to go that long feeling down, tired, and lazy everyday. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks.
