Re: Lamictal and Abilify
Everyone's different, but I take them vice versa. I take Abilify whenever I go to bed (it varies) and Lamictal when I wake up (which also varies). She (my pdoc) was going to put me on Lamictal at night if it made me drowsy during the day, but it didn't so she left it at the beginning of the day. Also, Lamictal will do almost nothing (according to my pdoc) for the mania. Its job is to concentrate more on the depressive side of things, but I've found that Abilify (antipsychotic) will help with mania once you get to a therapeutic dose (my pdoc started me at five mg. to see if I could take it then moved me up to ten mg., which is usually where it starts working well according to her).
