    Effexor XR and Abilify. Started Effexor months ago. Helped depression. Not crying all the time anymore. Started Abilify about 2 weeks ago. Seems to help a little more by bringing about a small sense of sanity and a fleeting feeling of contentment. Will continue to see what happens.

    I suffered from severe depression and nothing seemed to work until I received Electroconvulsive Therapy (shock therapy)and was then placed on abilify (10MG). I have only been on abilify for two weeks, but I have already noticed a major improvement. I also take other meds for depression and anxiety (lexapro, Remeron,& Clonazapam), but none seemed to work until my Dr. added Abilify. I am 44 ... Show Full Comment

(I cut a 5 mg pill in half)..and have been on the drug only about ten days. I feel a huge difference already. I had trouble getting out of bed and starting my day before, now I am up early and anxious to get t ... Show Full Comment

    I was always happy as I remember, but I also felt that I was "not right". I never really told anyone because they would just brush it off, or tell me that I'm imagining things when I tried. When I was 24 everything finally caught up to me. Attempted suicide, but someone found me and took me to the hospital. Obviously I was saved. I was put on Zyprexa 7.5mg. It worked good. But I g ...
