Abilify + Sertraline

Posted , 4 users are following.

Took it upon myself to up the Ability 2mg to an extra pill 4mg.  I was told my the doctor's office not to increase and now I know why.  3 days at 4mg with anxiety all day long - could hardly function or make any sense in conversation.  Going back to the 2mg with my 100mg Sertraline.

      Abilify or Aripiprazole can be used in conjunction with an antidepressant like Sertraline and works on chemicals in the brain for depression.  It is a common add-on when just the antidepressant doesn't seem to work.  Just Google Abilify to get more info.  I am also on 100mg sertraline but with 2mg of abilify.  Have been on Sertaline in different does since end of July.

      Keep the faith.  Sometimes these pills take time to work.

    Hi Nancyew

    I have always been afraid to take more medication than the doc has ordered...I do not need to make any more problems for myself than I already have on my too full plate.

      If your meds are working for you, of course, you wouldn't just add something new.  It was something my dr. suggested for me as Sertraline on its own wasn't working.

    Never increase or decrease a prescribed medication without the your physician being involved in the decision.

    I hope you feel better soon

    kind regards

      The doctor is always involved with any meds.!  Thanks, and I am beginning to feel a little better. Day to day.
