Treatment for Bipolar Disorder was the original on-label us for Abilify and Geodon, but as with many medications there are off-label, uses, that can, in many instances, become widespread.

They're doing studies now about Abilify and Geodon, I think (I'd have to look it up, to say which atypicals are under investigation) for generalized anxiety disorder. Not at the same dose as for biopolar, but at much lower doses, and as augmenting agents or alone.

That's how I"m using the abilify at 2. 5 mg/day. The usual dose for bipolar disorder is at least 15 mg/day, or more.

It's not necessarily for you, but it's something some people may find useful.
