I've had anxiety for years but nothing too out of control. Lately it has been way worse to where I barely leave the house which has caused some depression and was diagnosed with GAD and MDD. Doctor thinks I have mild bipolar tendencies as well. Took Lexapro for 2 days and had a mental breakdown. Panic attacks and derealization was insane. Almost went to the er 100 times. Doctor gave me 2 MG Abilify to start tonight and I'm scared now to take anything. Anyone's experience (bad or good) is greatly appreciated.
Hi, Steph! Three words: Love my Abilify! It has literally saved my life with no side effects except that it's mildly energizing for me so I take it in the morning.
BTW, I'm taking 20mgs/daily.
Best regards and don't be scared... it's just your anxiety talking you into even more anxiety. Wildcat
