Anyone on these 2 meds? I've had stomach problems, fatigue and dizziness for a week...
and some depression...so I reduced the Abilify to 5 mgs. from 10mgs. last night and I
feel better today. I take 60mgs. of Cymbalta. The first 10 days I was on these meds I was
very sick but I got through it...I was originally on only 5mgs. of Abilify then the Pdoc bumped
it up to 10 bc I was anxious....but now I feel better back at 5mgs. for 1 day.

It sounds like 10mg was just too much for you. I have been on both in the past and still take Abilify. I have had aniety. But the benefit from abilify outweights the side effects for me. The cymbalta I would not take because for one it wasn't helping and for two it has sexual side effets which for me at age 31 is a deal breaker. I hope this has been helpful and that you will give us an update...
