Dear Stargazer,
i am taking only 2mg of abilify along with 6mg of emsam and 50mcg of cytomel.
with that combination i can't sleep for more than 5 hours which is definitely not enough for my mental health.
my pdoc suggested taking 1mg of abilify and if that ruins my mood (discontinuing even that small dose was a disaster,) trying extra klonopin or adding a hypnotic.
i agree about doing your own tinkering. i am careful about what i tell my doc but if i didn't adjust things myself from time to time i would be in trouble.
after going off abilify for 7 days and having a terrible crash, it did kick back in pretty fast, 4-5 days. of course that does feel fast when your depressed. if my mood starts to darken with this experiment, i am going to tell my doc i tried it longer than i did and move on to the next alternative.
not sleeping is almost, almost as bad as being depressed.
