I would possibly do two things. The Emsam patch can be removed before going to bed to reduce the stimulating effects. Some here have done that.

Also, you could increase the Abilify to 5 mg for a few days and see what happens.

What is the reason you are on 2.5, was more too much?

I started at 2.5 myself , went to 5 mg, held there and then increased it to 5 mg and 2.5 for a total of 7.5 mg. Some days I have taken 5 mg and 5 mg (total of 10) but not sure what dose is the best yet.

I also take amphetamine at a very low dose (5 mg) with the Abilify to increase`my energy and focus. I know all this experimentation is not good but I feel better if I have some control over doing this myself. If it was up to my pdoc I would probably be on 30 mg of Abilify with lots of side effects since he always oushes the dose too high, too quickly.

I definately believe a lower dose of Abilify works best for me.

I'm also on Emsam 6 mg. I sleep fine but always have so that usually is not an issue.
