Tonight I will take my 4th dose of the Abilify 2 mg.
Right now, I can't say if it's had any effect or not. I'm not worser, thankfully,
but am I better? I really dunno.
Lately, I'm not even really sure what I'm supposed to feel like any more!
I am not jesting when I say that. I know that pills can't make us happy
when we have non-medical issues that rob us of joy. My fears, phobias, low self-esteem, and other issues affect me everyday. I wish I could feel some real peace of mind. Sometimes I feel "flat". It's like a gaping hole in my soul and I can't fill it.

It can take a week or so to notice the difference with abilify. 2 mg is a very low dose. I started with 5 and now take 10. give it a little more time. I think it has been a life saver for me. I hope that it works for you. I find abilify to really control my moodiness. Good luck hon...

Give it a real chance. It is quite possible that you may need one or more dose adjustments before really noticing or even having a good idea how this medication is going to work for you.
