I started this med about a week and a half ago and after the 4th day I started feeling much better. I have so much more energy and interest in life again.

I have been taking abilify for a few months and my suicidal thoughts have disappeared. I am a little more anxious and can't sit still but it's better than the depression and suicidal ideations.

I was given this medication as a piggy back to my Lamictal (which works great as a mood stabilizer also). I love this medicaton! It kicked in immediatly...meaning days to a week. I was doing horrably with my bi-polar depression and this just kicked in and kicked rear! I take it at night so haven't noticed any side effects.

For anyone who has suffered from Severe Chronic Depression and Chronic Fatigue like me, my answer was, Cymbalta 60mgs, Abilify 2 1/2 mgs in the morning. I am not depressed anymore & I have energy to go all day. At bedtime I take Zolpidem 10mgs, (generic Ambien), and I wake up refreshed. It might not work for everyone but I have never felt better in my life.
