I was taking Abilify but it got to expensive. I switched psychiatrists around these time. So the new psychiatrist switched me to Depakote. However, when he took me off the Abilify I began have symptoms that are common to people that have taken Thorazine, Stelazine, or Haldol and many others like them. I haven't been on any of these in years. So I am going to call my psychiatrist on Monday and tell my psychologist said any needed to do something.

I have taken the same two medications plus buspar and effexor. I recently decided to go off the effexor as I was feeling no emotions. As far as the buproprion and abilify go I have had good success with them. I also recently decreased my dosage of abilify to 15 mg as was taking 30 mg and had developed some hand tremors so my psychiatrist reduced the dosage and I am doing much better. It has really helped with my depression and anxiety. The buspar also helps with my anxiety. I have pretty severe anxiety problems but am working through them in weekly counseling sessions with my psychologist. Hope that this helps. Kathy

I am currently taking these meds together... is there anyone else who has taken them TOGETHER? I want to know what your experience is or was.
