I'm really confused I started abilify and was told it was a mood stabilizer and found out its for schizophrenia. I was trying to get some insurance and I can't get it being on abilify. I have problems thinking about being bipolar, don't need any more labels..... rolleyes It works great so who needs insurance HA HA........

Hi Dawn,

Abilify works for both conditions. They've recently approved it for depression too. Your insurance won't insure you because you're on abilify? That's terrible! Can you appeal that decision somehow? Have your doctor write a letter with your diagnosis or something?
