    Honestly, Abilify is one of our lesser-liked antipsychotics. We got prescribed 5mg (along with another med) and it has made us extremely anxious when we take it, especially continuously. Because while it helps our depression, it seems to amplify any energetic/intense/activating feelings for us. Which for us, includes anxiety and trauma responses. It especially doesn’t agree with me, Alien, because I’m amped up at almost all times already (usually in a good way) and it pushes it all up to the extremes (like panic attacks or feeling so restless that I have to pace for hours). We actually need to tell our psychiatrist that it’s not working for us. We also get nauseous when taking it, but we suspect that’s the other med.
