Default Is dosage correct for Abilify? Concerned about Side Effects.


I am glad I have access to such good resource as this community forum.

My question is: Would it be a good starting dosage 5 mg in the morning and 5 mg at bedtime, this last, with Remeron=15 mg, as prescribed by pdoc ?

It has been now 10 days since I started taking Abilify for Atypical Major Depression. Since yesterday (day 9) felt very anxious and restless, with a compulsive desire to be walking or simply, moving. I can't hold any thought in my head and have very negative thoughts during these last two days.

Any insight will be much appreciated.

This Is Definitely Normal... Most Antidepressants And Mood Stabilizers Cause Increased Anxiety, Irritability, Restlessness, Etc. In The First Month Or Two... Just Give It Some Time And If They Don't Go Away Then There Is Obviously Something Not Right About Your Dosage And It Should Be Adjusted : ] Good Luck!
