I'm copying some of the answers above because they are the same except #4.

> 1. What dosage is used?

I take 10mg

> 2. How does it effect you cognitively?

I find Abilify to be without cognitive side effects.

> 3. Is it activating or sedating?

It is somewhat activating. When I first started it, I noticed an improvement in mental energy and motivation.

> 4. IS IT EFFECTIVE?!!!

YES. So far. I am only on my second week, but I have had significanly less angry outbursts, and more content mood. I think I even look more approachable. I started out on 5 mg last week and went up to 10 this week. I also take Lamictal. I hope I can tell you more. Do you have any other questions? I am very cyclothemic/bipolar.
