The Abilify immediately calmed down my manic state (not completely, but enough to let me sleep - now i'm sorta hypomanic maybe), but I did have a panic attack while on it. My doc wants to raise the dose in 2 weeks (i'm on 5mg now), and maybe it will help even more.

I'd rather be hypomanic than depressed, but I can't take this panic attack thing.

The day before I went to see the pdoc again, I had run out of Lamictal and dropped my last dose of Abilify on the floor. By the next morning, I was freaking out again (full blown manic). This shows me how big of a difference the meds are making!

Phillipa, I had been off meds for about a year and a half...maybe two years until a month ago, when I started Lamictal. I hadn't been to see a pdoc or therapist since then. I'd like to get back into therapy too.

Haven't needed the xanax as of yet today -

I'll keep y'all posted on my progress :)
