Angry Abilify 2 mgs??????????

Hi all. I was taking Lamictol but got some bad side effects from it. My Pysc. wants to put me on 2mgs. of Abilify along with my 10 mgs. of Lexapro, I told him I was worried about the weight gain of Abilify and he said on that low of a does, NO, NO need to worry.

What do you think? I am afraid of medications period, but know I need them regardless.........

Pls. tell me if Abilify helped you, and 2mgs. should not be a weight gainer would you think???

Pls. I don't know where to turn or what to do.

Please help or advise.........The Lamictol was fine til I went up to the next level, then all started, eyelids itched and red and puffy, little red like pen marks showing up out of no where, face, legs, etc. And don't know if this has anything to do with it, but my eyes, and nose will NOT stop running and my eyes hurt. I have to take a claratin D everyday, and know that is not good. I have a dr's appt. in a few days. I need your help........

God bless.

Re: Abilify 2 mgs??????????

Hi! I wish I could give you some advice on this med. My Dr wanted me to try it to. You can break the 2 mg in half and take 1 mg. I have not started it as I am switching Dr's. You won't know until you try and it may be the best thing for you. If you don't like it you can stop. Post what your Dr said and if your trying the med. Good luck!

Re: Abilify 2 mgs??????????

Thank you. I have been on so manyyyyyyyyy antidepressants that I am loosing faith.

I am also under allot of pressure and constant worry overy my mothers health.

Thank you, I will see what he say's when I go back in ..........surely that tiny of a dose would not? But you are right, won't know til you try.

I have heard good things about Effexor, thinking maybe about trying this one. Anyone had luck with it? My anxity is out of this world right now........and that does not help my depression.

Any feed back would be great.

God bless and thank you.

Re: Abilify 2 mgs??????????

Have you tried Pristiq? I have had wonderful luck with anxiety/depression on it. Effexor made me more anxious but we are all different. Good luck!
