I have had TRD and MDD with near constant suicide ideation for at least 35 years. Tried all SSRIs and SSNRIs, Lthium, Serequol, Lamictal. Within the past 4 years 2 suicide attempts (1 leading to intensive care and both to the psyc ward YUK!) Approx 3 weeks ago started slipping into intense and increasingly hopeless dark despair and my suicide ideation was at its most seductive. ABILIFY IS A MIRACLE DRUG! :) Just 2 days into Abilify w/prozac and I WANT to LIVE, I have HOPE, I even felt JOY yesterday! If this is the placebo effect I'm ok w/that... There is LIGHT in my life. If I gain weight, SO WHAT, I'll take being fat and happy over hopeless and suicidal any day! :) 9/08/11: added 2mg Abilify to my 20mg Prozac only side effect so far is JOY! :)
Is it possible that the joy and hope that I feel after being on 2mg of abilify for only 2 days is?
Thats great news to hear,i truely hope the abilify is working for you and will stay working! You need that after all you've been thorough,you certainly need a break from feeling so down and horrible!!
I hope you have finally found the right med that will work for you!!
You have a great possitive attitude and stick with it!
Best of luck and i wish for many many joyful days for you!!
I take Abilify 15 mgs, have for years and have found it to be very helpful. It enhances the efficacy of the antidepressant. It will even get better as the Abilify reaches theraputic level. I have even lost weight while taking Abilify so I wouldn't worry about the weight gain as long as you watch the calories you'll be fine. I understand the YUK as far as the psych wards and suicide attempts. If you need someone to talk to don't hesitate to holler. We are a supportive bunch here.
Best of luck on the new med,
ANYTHING is possible!! Hope and joy are the best things in life!
Very happy for you.
