hello margarida,

Welcome to HW and to the Bipolar Forum.

The highest dose of Abilify that I took was 20mg. I was on 10mg for about a month and my pdoc raised it to 20mg. I stopped taking it after about a week of feeling drowsy. I didn't have that side effect on the lower dose, but at 20mg it was almost unbearable. I was on the verge of being asleep all the time.

Are you experiencing side effects? I just wanted to remind you that people react differently to medications. Some people don't even get side effects. But if you do get side effects that are bothersome and won't go away that is when you should bring up your concenrs with your pdoc.

Thanks olivia. I started with 15mg and it really made me anxious so i was kind of afraid of how it would work out, but until now it's been alright.
