Abilify is a miracle! I have taken it for a year, increased from 5 to 7 mg 3 months ago. No more suicidal thoughts and a much more positive attitude in general. No weight gain, which I attribute to decreased eating due to decrease in depression. I also take venlafaxine, trazadone for insomnia and amphetamine salts.
