I've tried Geodon for depression, and I can't function on it - it puts me to sleep. I've tried Seroquel, and it does absolutely nothing for my depression. Does anyone know if Zyprexa or Risperdal combined with Effexor works as well as Abilify for depression? Does anyone know their generic names? I can't afford Abilify now that I'm leaving the catastrophic stage of Medicare where the prices are much lower. I'm going to end up off of Abilify, suicidally depressed, and begging for EST because no medication works for me but Abilify. I haven't tried Zyprexa or Risperdal. Would anyone know how they work on major depresssion? I'm scared and getting desperate as January approaches.
I am sorry you are scared and not finding what you need for your depression. It seems the only way you will find out if the meds you mentioned works is to try them.
I know that sounds daunting. But the sonner you start the sooner you will be able to wean off Abilify and on to something else.
Hope it all works out for you.
Hi,Desperate here are the names both the brand and generic names. Below and as you know everyone is different and the act different on each of us but these have been used for years for severely depressed people with lots of success If you get too tired or other side effects let the doctor know and normally they can adjust the doses to lessen the side effects. You really should not get too upset the doctor well is able to find something for you. Did you guys because the Abilify worked so well for you call the company and see if you can get it for free or for very little co-pay from the manufacturer ask your doctor about this.There are many programs to help people in your situations Hope this info well help but you worrying about it is not going to help your condition they well figure out something for you. Best of luck and it well works out call your doctor Tomorrow and asks if they can call the company for you that way you may not even have to change. Best of luck. Chuck1957
