My psychiatric journey began in childhood. I was a rambunctious child with ADHD. When I was a teenager I struggled with depression and then when I was 25 I had a full blown bipolar episode concurrent with OCD-harming thoughts. I stabilized on Depakote but was a total *ssh*l* until 2003 when I went on Lithium. In 2007 OCD began to rear its ugly head and I spent 4 years falling down a hole. It wasn't until 2011 that my OCD finally came under control with Clomipramine and Dextroamphetamine-and lots of ERP.

Anxiety disorders are difficult to treat. They often take a combination of drugs to treat successfully.

I don't know why your doctor recommended Abilify-it sometimes causes akathisia which can make anxiety unbearable. There are other antipsychotics that don't have a lot of the side effects Abilify has.
