I'm on 15 mg of abilify. It works as a booster to the Celexa.
I started getting agitated on it and they added congentin which
works great to level me out. I've had multiple med changes in my life and all
I can say is it's worth it when you finally get it dialed in....frustrating in the
meantime. But as far as abilify goes it's great for depression, I've not had any
problems on it. It's also weight neutral but I've gained weight....I think it was
the Cymbalta though that did that and I'm off of that now. But the weight is
still on. Anyways good luck and keep posting!
