ARGH! When will I learn? When will these people learn? NEVER! I give up on trying to communicate on my terms. I reached out again and what a way to make me feel like a piece of shit. I hope you’re happy. You probably are. ROFL. 🙂 hahaha
Abilify is still the best thing ever. However, there are concerns like I don’t think there is a generic yet. I don’t know the cost because I had doctor samples. I do know that some people had problems in 2006 because their insurance wouldn’t pay for NON-generic meds for more than 6 months. I hope these people weren’t bipolar and/or Abilify was the only thing that worked.
I have one more thing to say about Abilify: It may make you very sleepy at first. Please don’t stop it just because of that. You have to give it at least a week. Only stop it if you have the serious effects your doctor (hopefully) told you about.
The biggest thing the med has done for me is literally get me moving. I didn’t know I was so depressed until the Abilify started working. It starts working quickly…Oh and you may not want to take it at night. Listen to your doctor. Of course my doctor didn’t tell me when to take it so I had to figure it out myself.
Now I get so much more done. It is just like the commercial. It winds you up. I don’t linger in bed after the alarm goes off. I’m up early on the weekends. I have more TIME. I feel normal (in that one way). I’m on the lowest possible dose (2.5 mg) and I’m supposed to go up to the regular amount late next week. More updates then…………
I went to the dentist. I just wanted my teeth clean. That’s it. It didn’t happen. Since I couldn’t do the “bite down” x-rays, they wouldn’t/couldn’t do anything. I kept gagging. It was horrible. And it kept getting worse, the more they tried. I never want to go through that again so that is the end of that.
I’m still awaiting my final grades.
I have to get over my coworkers. You will not be the death of me.
Since I have been posting pics lately, here is a pic of a bedroom I really like. It isn’t a head over heels love but I like the browns and greens. Love the details.
The pic is from HGTV Rate My Space site. I could spend hours there.
