> I only took Abilify for 2 weeks at 15mg (or was it half that?) whatever it was, it was a low dose for social anxiety. I stopped it because I feel restless (akathsia). Heard there's some special drug for that side effect, but I had Neurontin on hand and that worked while I was waiting for it to leave my bloodstream (p-doc didn't have any ideas, just told me to stop taking it).
> Now that I'm on Klonopin daily, I figure that shouldn't be a problem... so anyone with ADD, social anxiety, or sleepiness... notice a change? I procrastinate like crazy, I'm tired during the day (I'm seeing sleep docs and have BiPap for mild apnea, but no success) and have insomnia to boot... plus social anxiety, which my p-doc wants me to deal with by switching from Klonopin to Valium or Xanax (hey, maybe if one rotates every three months to a different benzo, that first three month feeling works)
> Anyway, Abilify or Straterra are my ideas for social anxiety and ADD. I take Desoxyn. I can't believe no one's augmented Straterra with a stim on this board, when done slowly, I don't see any problems...

i took abilify for ADD and sleepiness but only as an alternative to zyprexa so I can only tell you how one compares to the other ....

actually i'm taking 3.75 mg abilify right now, and i definately need ritalin as well for my relatively severe ADD... and clonazepam for my anxiety ....
