@stephanieann I am on a low dose of aripripraole (Abilify) to help with my Lexapro working with depression and anxiety, while the anxiety sounds like your main concern for your son. I have not tried to wean off this, as it (5 mg) is working for me, but the slow approach of doing one medication at a time with the CBD oil seems like it is working well for your son's case. Maybe you've found a good replacement for the mix of drugs that your son has been taking, and I certainly hope so! ­čÖé

Thank you for your kind words. My goal would be to get him off all the psychiatric meds and hopefully just have to take CBD oil. I am concerned about the sometimes serious long term side effects of the prescribed psych meds and I understand that CBD oil does not have serious side effects. The psychiatrists have little experience with CBD so it is being done by trail and error.
