  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Borderline Personality Disorder)
  • side effects
    Moderate (Slowness, Apathy)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 2 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This medication really saved my life. It acts like a fire retardant blanket over my intense emotions. Now I experience emotions at a controllable and pleasant intensity level. When I took it alone (without any other medication) it did lead to a flat lined type of apathy. It was unpleasant and caused depression. This has been alleviated by the addition of Lamotrigine. Abilify does still cause general mental slowness, that increases with a higher dosage, however my doctor and I have managed this symptom to a tolerable level with a very low dose.
Cost: $200+ monthly
