My Pdoc is casual with me about everything with my meds. She knows I can take care of myself since I do lots of research. I am LOVING my Abilify so far and can already tell a difference. I have not been "jump up and go" in ages. I am already going out more and enjoying the springtime. She let me drop down a half of a pill 1350mg before and now at 1125mg. I want to get down to 900mg all this month while taking the Abilify. I meet with her June 3rd. Can I taper off one more 1/2 pill before then? I have been down 1/2 pill for two weeks. I did get my level check last week and waiting on the results. I was at .9 on my 1350mg. I hope some of you have been through this and can help. I am also on Inderal b/c my blood pressure has been elevated. I have water retention from the Lithium too. So the inderal is helping and I have been drinking more water. I have dropped 5 pounds this past week! YEAH! Ok, hope you guys can help me! Thanks! ((((hugs)))) Kristen
