> I'm in literally the same situation as you. Why do you want to switch over to abilify? Do you have daytime sedation from seroquel? Abilify is giving me insomnia, whereas seroquel fixed it. Seroquel is much better for anxiety for me.
> I wake up early, too. Maybe it's the seroquel? I was toying with the idea of taking both.... But I doubt it. Can you get to sleep without seroquel? or does the remeron help?
> May I ask what happened with nortriptyline?

No I don't have any daytime sedation with Seroquel, it's the metabolic side effects along with anticholinergic properties and alpha 1 adrenergic antagonism that I don't like. These and Abilify being possibly more effective are the main reasons for a switch. I agree that Seroquel is better for anxiety, that is important. I've been thinking about my insomnia and I now believe that Lamictal is the reason, not Seroquel.
I can't recall that I had any problems with insomnia when I took Seroquel in doses up to 600 or 800mg several months ago. Nothing really happened with nortrip, it simply didn't work, was at 150mg for several weeks.
