okay mr i dont have any friends

Okay, Mr. Lexapro.
I’ll help you out. What are you being treated with it for? Depression, anxiety, or both? Does it make you feel jittery? If it does, it may take a bit to get used to or you may need to try a different medication. Obviously, if it makes you feel jittery and it’s something you don’t want for drawing, take it after. If you take it later at night it could possibly keep you up.

I personally have no experience with lexapro, but it’ll become clear what the issues are and you can treat them yourself by taking it at a different time or talk to your doctor about other treatment. Keep in mind, as it sounds like you’re inexperienced with medication for depression and anxiety, that you may feel a lot better for a week or two and then you’ll go back to how you were feeling. This happened to me a few times and I needed to change medication, but you should stay on it for at least a month to a month and a half to really know.

im taking it for high blood pressure

Okay, well, take it a prescribed unless there’s an issue. If so contact your doctor.
I just got off it after taking it for 2 years. It really didn’t help me much because I tried to kill myself three times at Christmas.

I just got switched to Abilify today. Does anyone know anything about it? Any side effects?

Google. I have no personal experience. Though, don’t stay on the same medication for two years if it isn’t working.

People with "issues" do crazy things.

yea dude im just asking if people took it in the morning or the evening….he gave me a choice…..im not retarded man, nor is anyone else in this thread…use your "common sense"

You know how to works. How am I supposed to know what you’re using it for.

And no, fuck stick. You didn’t ask if people took it in the AM or PM. You asked when you should take it.
Doesn’t matter when you take it. It’s an SSRI which needs to be built up in your system in the first place. But I would take it at the same time everyday.

It actually can matter, as SSRIs can have an energizing effect, thus keeping you up.

Google didn’t tell me much. I took the Abilify last night and slept good for the first time in a long time.

It’s a good medication for that. Melatonin 1 mg or 2mg (1 to start) works very well for most people as well for sleep.

Abilify was pretty tame if you ask me. I didn’t notice anything unusual on it.

Re: Lexapro, it’s either in the AM or PM as obvious. My doc told me that with prozac, some get a bit wired and need to take it in the AM or sleepy.. take it in the PM.

Try taking it on a Saturday AM or any other non-work day and if it makes you sleepy, that’s your answer.

A doctor just gave me abilify today and I’m terrified because now I think I’m crazy.

An Abilify is used for a lot of different things.

i just started abilify and sleep like shit, even if i take a temazepam (30mg) or a 2mg xanax. i always wake up at set times. tho i was just recently off of geodon, and that causes sleep problems when you go off of it.

Yeah, unfortunately everyone is so individual that some of these things just don’t work. Try Ativan or Melatonin if you’ve already done Lunesta, Ambien, Sonta, etc — all those.

A lot of different types of crazy.

It’s not used only for psychiatric problems.

don’t sweat it, ability is REALLY good stuff… really good.
What makes abilify really good stuff?

What else is it used for besides schizophrenia and bipolar mood modulation?

Just because it’s good stuff doesn’t mean I’m fine.
Lexapro did practically nothing for my social anxiety. my doctor just switched me to Cymbalta
Depression, Schizophrenia, Bi-Polar, Sleep Disorder, Obessive Compulsive Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress, Dementia and Alzheimers, as well as disorders which cause abnormalities of perception, such as depersonalization. It has many uses given it’s an atypical antipsychotic. Don’t let the word "psychotic" trick you into believing it’s used on "psychos." It has nothing to do with "crazy." It also has value in cases of Parkinson’s.

It doesn’t mean these should be treated with Abilify. Many are off-label uses, but clinical experience has shown many of these to be useful.
so i turn 21 next month, is it okay to drink with lexapro…..

Call our doctor to confirm.

Generally, no… but I’ve done it on prozac and a load of other shit and lived to tell about it.

Thanks for the list, I was unaware of some of these.

I still can’t get over the stigma of being on a drug that helps what were termed "crazy" people fifty years ago. I know the sophistication in understanding different conditions has increased greatly, but even when I was a kid (20 years ago) there wasn’t a wide spread understanding and tolerance of these people. At least not in the circles I grew up in.

And now to be experiencing many of the symptoms of the conditions from the above list…quite a blow to my ego. I thought I was healthy and smart and strong. Now I see there is something wrong with my brain/body beyond the superficial or the easily curable and it’s kicking my ego-ass.

Superior to antidepressants.

All natural. No side effects.

Also, to come off of drugs:

Prescription mood drugs = brain damage. Taper off of them slowly and take mood max + exercise instead.

Abilify was only approved 5 years ago and released to the public.

There still isn’t much understanding today, but today we understand the biological implications as the process behind most of the conditions that treat these diseases.

The biggest obstacle for patients has always been social isolation, with family frowning upon the patients condition, or a lack of understanding.

I suffer from an actual infectious disease which is surprisingly looked at in the same way.

And now to be experiencing many of the symptoms of the conditions from the above list…quite a blow to my ego. I thought I was healthy and smart and strong. Now I see there is something wrong with my brain/body beyond the superficial or the easily curable and it’s kicking my ego-ass.

I thought the same thing, I thought I was invincible as a kid, then reality struck and I became ill. The truth is, you do whatever it takes to survive, and using the environment in all it’s methods — whether technology, whether advances in medications, whatever — use all tools in order to survive.

That "is" smart, that is also strong compared to someone who abandons that concept and ends their life before allowing the use of external tools.

If you’re leg is broken, you use a cast. If you’re wounded badly, you suture the wound, if you’re suffering a lack of sunlight and experiencing debilitating depression, we use artifical sunlight. If you suffer a psychiatric condition caused by either biological, genetic, or psychological factors, we try to reduce or solve the problem using medication, psychotherapy (or other types of therapeutic intervention).

Smart people use whatever means are necessary, and the strongest are usually not necessarily the most fit, but the most adaptable. So adapt…..
