@bobbiekc I just quit Abilify for the second time. First time I felt so bad that I stayed in bed for the day. I had to quit. I was on 5mg. Just a couple of weeks ago with a new pyschiatrist started me on it again. Even after telling him that I did not do very well.. I started off with 2 mg. for a week then went up to 5 mg. again then 7 mg. with the intention of bringing me up to 15 mg. I didn't help any anxiety. In fact I turned very restless.. and then sleepy.. it went on all day. My lips and gums were swollen. It didn't help my anxiety at all. Doc told me it was for my mood swings. I ended up calling the Crisis center and the nurse told me to stop taking it. What helped my anxiety was a strain in marijuana. It helped me a lot more than drugs. I am 66 yrs. old and enjoyed the high for awhile but not for long. Coughing also because I have COPD. It did help my phlem and weed should be studied for COPD. Everyone is different… You should try it and see for your self and not listen to others. I wish you the best of luck in finding your medicine. OH I also became very depressed and lost my appetite.
