Abilify for OCD- experiences?

I was just prescribed Abilify for Bipolar rage and OCD- anyone have any successes/failures with this? I am on day two and it has increased by obsessions significantly. This is the worst I have ever been. Pdoc said it would help control my anger and violent thoughts but I feel worse. I am wondering if this dies down or if I should stop.

Re: Abilify for OCD- experiences?

Hi there, I was on abilify before and it didn't help with my ocd....I'll be taking celexa starting tomorrow. My new doctor said that it's a very helpful medicine to treat ocd and depression. I heard that luvox is also a good medicine for ocd and so is anafranil. Good luck!

did the abilify make your ocd worse? I can't take AD's because of my bipolar.

Re: Abilify for OCD- experiences?

A coworker of mine takes abilify and she loves it. She says it's much better than lithium. I'm only OCD/anxiety so I haven't had any experience with it.
