I am curious to know how this drug has helped those who have tried it or r taking it. I suffer from severe depression and chronic fatigue with no interest in anything. I'm going to ask my doc next week if I can try this med. Thank You for All Responses
Hi, Snugg! Let me first say that every drug affects every individual differently. That being said, I've been taking Abilify for about 3yrs now for Bipolar disorder with depressive and hostile features. I've LOVED it from the get go because my mood lifted, no more sadness, no more suicidal ideation within a week or so of starting it. I've had no side effects at all.
I would highly recommend giving it a whirl. It's been a G*dsend in my life which is now happy, healthy, productive, and fulfilled,
Good luck! I think you're making a wise choice and I hope Abilify will do for you what it's done for.me.
Any questions or concerns, just ask. Wildcat
First of all I am sorry you are undergoing such bad time.
You should know that abilify is not an anti-depressant it is an antipsychotic and one of its many uses is to treat major depressive disorder, I ould also consider taking it with an antidepressant, consult with your Dr. about whci AD may be suitable for you.
I am bipolar and took abilify for many years, it really helped me a lot with my mood swings and anger.
Remember we are all different and react to medications in a unique way.
I wish you find a solution.
