Good-morning! I have recently started Abilify 7.5 mg in two divided doses (I take 5mg in the morning and 2.5mg in the evening). In the past I have suffered from severe depression possibly Bipolar Disorder but I have not yet been fully diagnosed. My moods have improved greatly with the Abilify, I feel more like myself than I have felt in years. I usually do not suffer any bad side effects and tolerate newly introduced drugs well....however I also take Lyrica 75mg bid, and have found my mind to be cloudy and I often feel "spaced out". I find this very concerning as I have a family and household to take care of. I do not like my children seeing me like this! Has anyone else had similar experiences? Will these side effects improve as my body tolerates the drugs better? Any help or suggestions would be appreciated! I should add I am 42 years old and currently a stay at home mom (though I am a registered nurse), I have been unable to work for the past five years due to my mental illness and physical limitations (back injury and Degenerative Disc Disease, two central disc herniations at L3-4 and L4-5). Thanks!
