    Major (for Increase effect of another treatment)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 15 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: If you see the advertisement for this medication on TV the side effects will scare the heck out of you. I take 15 mg. of Abilify which is quite a high dose and I do not feel any side effects from this medicine per se. The Abilify must be doing what it is presecribed for as my life is on an even keel and the stress that comes my way does not knock me for a loop and I can ususally handle stress without having to use any other mood stabilizing drugs.
Cost: < $25 monthly
