Question Abilify Weight Question

I have chronic Depression and my doctor wants to augment my Lexapro and Wellbutrin with Abilify. My main worry is possible weight gain. From your experiences at what amount does weight gain tend to start. I wonder if it happens at 2 or 5 milligrams?

Re: Abilify Weight Question

I take 10mg. of Abilify every day and haven't noticed an unusual weight gain. I have just put on a little weight because I'm 50 now and not exercised lately. The anti-depressant effects of Abilify as a booster have helped me tremendously. No side effects either. It is well worth trying it. Good luck to you--------
