Hi Dima,

You seem to be making a lot of rapid changes to your medication. Your regimen has already become quite complex. The problem with this is that it leaves you with little idea about what each individual medication is doing. Unfortunately, a lot of patience and gradual dose titration is needed to optimise the treatment of depression (whether it involves a single med or a combination or meds).

Each medication that you try needs to be given six to eight weeks at an adequate dose before you decide what to do next. Adding new meds after only a couple of weeks really confuses things.

Please be careful. Your experience on 20mg of Abilify demonstrates the harm that can be done when dosages are abruptly and substantially increased.

Take care.
