Oh thanks for the welcome"026yeah this is something I am now allowing at least 2 years to get out of. I took 3.25 mgs of abilify this morning and plan to far a few months I think .im sarting a very small dose of Prozac 5 mgs (which is about the only anti depressant I can tolerate) I will see how that goes for a few weeks. Get more stable and start getting off abilify again in a few months except this time it will be 3.25 not 7.5. Yeah "026it's a time thing.its going to take time and tiny adjustments. But my goal is to be at least off abilify. I did very well on Prozac for years. Im feeling good today. Im so happy to be well again. Thanks for askingView Thread
sorry about posting this twice but im pretty despirate actually....sorry bout this just new and did not know where to post.
was on 7.5mgs of abilify for 4 years. i withdrew slowly over a period of 4 months. i suffered terribly. but the short of it is that i had cancer scare and spun out on that in panick and something else really wierd and hard to describe happened. this later condition hospitalised me once.its very physical and not my usual long term form of anxiety i have. i have ocd and adhd. i started to take the abilify again @7.5 mgs i have done this three days in row and improved dramatically. however i do not want to go through abilify withdrawels all over again..i had about a month where i was doing real well without the abilify. or did i just have no insite? any ideas?View Thread
