abilify is new to me and I've read some bad things. I've also read that Effoxor interacts with abilify. plus i can't really get a straight answer about what abilify does to dopamine levels or serotonin.
I have been on Pristiq which is very similar to Effexor along with Wellbutrin and Abilify for years and years. The Wellbutrin affects the dopamine receptors primarily which the Effexor does not and the Abilify affects another type receptor which helps to enhance the effectiveness of the antidepressants. I have found it to be a wonderful combination.
the combination of Effexor, wellbutrin, and abilify is danger combination of depressant. the over dose is very harmful for the peasant. please consult with your doctor.
Venlafaxine (brand name: Effexor or Effexor) is an antidepressant of the serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) class.
Bupropion is a drug that is primarily used as an atypical antidepressant and smoking cessation aid. Marketed as Wellbutrin, Budeprion, Prexaton, Elontril, Aplenzin, or other trade names, it is the fourth-most prescribed.
ABILIFY is prescribed as an add-on treatment for adults with unresolved symptoms of depression after at least 6 weeks on an antidepressant.
I was just on ability and had to switch back to effexor. The only reason I tried abilify was because of the side effects that I was suffering from effexor. The weight gain, constipation and low sex drive.
With abilify, I didn't feel those side effects but felt very depressed and anxious. This is me. Everybody reacts different to medication though.
