if you are into body building that will help alot seaquel is powerful and will make you letarget(spelling sucks sorry)
if you have a sleeping problem only do not use it, use a sleeping pill, if you have axiety try abilify use sequal as a last choice and if bi polar not at all research but not online, webmd is a good page, the mayo is good but the internet for this kind of research is not the most reliable. Good Luck if you need to have buddy let my know

First off, thanks for responding.
 
Im pretty sure all antipsychotics work the same way? Both Seroquel and Abilify are dopimine and sertonin an-agonist. The real question is how long is the half life of Seroquel? Although Seroquel prolongs the life of acheoline which is a major exitatory nuerotransmitter in the CNS, important for muscular contraction.
 
Do you know how long the half life for each of these drugs are?
 
Also if im wrong about Abilify please correct me. Why do you say its a better choice then Seroquel?

webmd is the best resource other than the mayo clinic My shrink had me on Seroquel, I loved it at first but being bi-polar it threw me into a pyhcotic state but remeber people react differently, abilify is a weaker one and less side affects and does not knock you out like a zomby. But if you just take them one here then stop a few days then take another which my doc told me too crap I had muscles cramps! but not when I was on abilify but I am off both and on clonopane only because ambien is not generic lol yeah
