Until recently, I had been taking Zoloft for years with satisfactory results. Depression and bipolar symptoms returned strongly and Abilify was added to my treatment upon my request. I have experienced significant spotting since starting this drug, but the beneficial effects outweigh this by far.

I take Abilify at night (5mg) and Zoloft (200mg) and welbutrin (100mg) in am for Depression. Was taking Trazadone with the Abilify for sleep but now don't need Trazadone and find that Abilify makes me drowsy enough. For the depression it worked extremely well with the other meds.

This medication was prescibed for chronic migraine, it caused me to have hyperprolactinemia. I had no period for more than a year and it caused my breasts to leak milk even though I have no children. Even my gyn did not catch this one.

I started risperidone 2mg at bedtime in April of 2013. Since then I have no more anxiety, not depressed, no longer agitated or nervous I feel much better no more social anxiety disorder and it has helped my spasmodic dysphonia. I can focus much better. Life is good !!!

I was given the Rx to take at bedtime.. this is given to schizophrenics and it causes one to hear voices? Sounds like job security for masochistic shrinks. Feel MUCH better w/out it. I urge everyone to GET A SECOND OPINION!!!I now take a single dose of one med each day. Keep trying, there IS something better out there.
