I have been taking this fairly new medicine and as silly as it sounds, I am not sure it is helping me or making things worse. I have major depressive and anxiety disorder with boderlind bipolar disorder. I just wanted to get some opinions/ results from others. I still have to force myself to get out of bed and participate with life. I still have NO energy and these were the main things I was hoping would improve with this medicine.

Give the medicine time. Your dose may need to be increased slowly if you are not feeling signs of improvement. It may take a month or two before your doctor gets the dose right. Talk to your doctor.
i take pristqi 50 mg and it took a month for me to feel better i also take ativan in different doses depending on my need that also helps, at one point i took abilfiy for 6 months i didn't see a change, then my doctor put me on vyannse that got me ot of bed with energy but with a whole different set of side affects(who knows) had to stop that but i haven't gone back to bed and my out look is still good although i also suffer from chonic pain. hope this has helped you always dicuss meds and how you feel even if you have to call in for an extra appointment with your doctor.
