Abilify ~ keep going or stop ?

Posted by redscarlet on November 14, 2005, at 15:17:32

Well I've been on Abilify for 10 days. (for bipolar)
I started out taking 2.5 mgs a day and then a couple days I took 2.5 mgs in both the AM and PM then went back to 2.5 mgs in the AM.
For the past three days I have cut the 2.5 mgs in half and taken that in the morning only.
Here's the problem, I don't feel any better.
I feel like I'm having some akathisia.
I just want to keep moving (I'm pacing the floor) all day ! And I can't focus very well. I have this need to move but can't seem to get anything done. I'm just so uncomfortable.
I went to a card shop today and tried to buy my Christmas cards but just couldn't keep focused or be still enough, so I left with no Christmas cards, not even one !
I seem to be prone to akathisia, I got it really bad when I was on Geodon the first time I took it, and it was at only 40 mgs !
So my question is do I stay with the Abilify for a few more days or give it up ???

Thanks for your help and thoughts on this... :-)
