When Is The Best Time To Take Abilify Am Or Pm ,Will It Make Me Tired? What Do You Mean About Manic

Answer

Hi Barbara,

Sorry, I'm not on Abilify, however, I can suggest something:

if your pdoc believes the Abilify is sedating or will make you drowsy, ask her or him when you can take it so that you won't wind up drowsy in the morning or afternoon.

I'm on Geodon, an atypical, and the doctor raised the morning dose instead of the evening dose, because when I was on the Stelazine, my old drug, I took the Stelazine at night and that caused me to be fatigued in the morning.

So with the new drug, the Geodon, I take the higher dose in the morning and I'm not fatigued or drowsy in the morninig any more.

As to "what do you mean about manic?" I don't understand what you're getting at. Please clarify.

Best regards,

Christina
