Default Why would anyone take Abilify?

I just watched the Abilify commercial on tv again, and once more find myself asking why anyone would take a drug with so many precautions and possible side effects, both life threatening and permanently impairing. I am depressed on a daily basis, and though undiagnosed, feel I am mostly like bi-polar - manic/depressive. I do not take any medications, and I do not see that I would ever take such an unsafe drug. I could probably fell better if I took an anti-depressant, but choose not to. I do not want to be a zombie, which is what I see when I look at some of my friends and family members who use anti-depressants - they are half of who they are. I think as a society, we are just too quick to pick up a pill.

I have suffered from major depressive disorder for most of my 36 years. I have been on so many medications that I have lost count. Since being prescribed Abilify, I have actually been able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.... and guess what.... it's not a freight train.

I also suffer from anxiety disorder, adhd, and severe migraines. I am thankful for the medications that I have been prescribed. They help me and I suffer no side effects. sure, I may not be the "me" that I would be without them. but in my honest opinion, that's a great thing.
