> I was on and off abilify for almost two years. It was like a magic pill for depression for me. Within 48 hours, I would feel fine. No side effects at all. Then within a week, I would begin gaining weight at the rate of 2-3 pounds per week. I would stop, get depressed again within 48 hours, start again. It was so upsetting because abilify worked so well. I tried 2,5 and 10mg. 2mg had no effect. 5 did.

> Most people don't gain weight on abilify, so it's certainly a good drug to try if you have major depression.

Wow, that's a ridiculous amount of weight gain!! From what I know the weight gain is rapid from APs but then finally plateaus out. How sad that it kept going up:(
What do you take now?
