Hey
Has anyone tried Abilify or Lexapro?
If yes, what was/is your prescribed dose?
I take 10mg Lexapro and I should take 5mg Abilify before bed - is 5mg a lot? (I got prescribed that bc of my schizo ocd and fear of being in prodromal phase)

I haven't taken abilify. 2-5mg is a starting dose with 2-15 being the range of a daily dose.

I have taken several SSRIs and SNRIs over several decades. (paxil, effexor, etc).

I have taken Lexapro in the past at 40mg per day. A pharmacist once remarked that 40mg was

a high dose. My psychiatrist didn't appreciate the remark. I am now taking 20mg a day and the thing

I like about Lexapro (escitalopram) is that it gives me zero side effects. I had unwanted sexual side effects

with paxil and effexor. Of course, your mileage may vary.
