Abilify with Asperger's Syndrome
 
My daughter, whose 14th birthday is today, has Asperger's Syndrome with bipolar features. She has been taking Abilify for a month. We are well satisfied with it so far. She takes it in combination with Eskalith (a sustained release formulation of lithium). This was after a long run Seroquel which gave fair results except that it caused terrible drowsiness and she was sleeping through her day. Now, here are a couple of points: we found that she still had a big problem with drowsiness on Abilify, even though she's a pretty big girl and receiving only 5 mg daily. So we tried moving the Abilify to shortly before bedtime, and happily enough it seems to sustain her willingness and mood right through the morning and eraly afternoon.
