    I stopped taking seroquel last night at bed time and replaced it with abilify.  It was the worst night's sleep I've had in ages!  When is abilify normally taken?  Maybe I took it at the wrong time.

    When I started taking Abilify I first took it at night because of the drowsy side effect I read it had. That didn't work out very well for me (like you). I then started taking it in the morning. This works well for me. Abilify seems to have really dramatically reduced my depression. I hope this helps you...

    Seroquel withdrawal is bad news, especially if you were on a high dose, it typically takes about a week for meds to get out of your system, so that could be part of your sleeping problem as well. Abilify is also not a sleeping pill....hope this helps.

    I don't know - doesn't it say it on your prescription label?  Did you throw it out accidentally?  Ask the pharmacist what it had said. 

    If you're not sleeping good, maybe you should get back into see the doctor.  Good sleep is so important.  I take additional meds for sleep.
