Re: Did you ever try Abilify?

I dont have bipolar (I have psychotic depression) but do take abilify. I take it for the psychosis that accompanies my depression. I'm on 15mg (I started on 5mg) and have to say, it has helped with my auditory hallucinations (they've nearly completely disappeared). The really good thing is, this medication doesn't seem to have any side-effects. I mean, it doesn't make me tired and it hasn't made me put on any weight, which is great. However, it hasn't help with my depression, although it obviously isn't an anti-depressant. I'm not sure how good abilify would be for someone with bipolar; but if you suffer from psychois with either your mania or depression, it should definitely help.

Hope this helps.

Best,
