Hi. sorry you had a bad experience on abilify. we take medications to make us feel better and it stinks when it actually has the opposite effect. Medications are such that each person will have their own unique response to each medication. and even medications in the same class can work for someone when the previous one they tried did not. So, I would try to work with your doctor to get the right fit medication for YOU. It really can be trial and error to get the best fit. Keep tring hon. And to be fair. a trial of a drug does take time. 6 to 8 weeks is a fair trial unless side effects are unbearable. Let us know how the psych appointment goes!!!
