Has anybody here used Abilify solely as an antidepressant? If so how did it work out for you? Since I can no longer take antidepressants, I only have Abilify as an option for right now so I'd like to know how Abilify worked for others...

Thanks,
Andy...

I believe Abilify is used as an adjunct to a true antidepressant for treatment resistant cases, not as an antidepressant in and of itself.

Just thought I'd add that one in there.

Yea. I know via the FDA it's approved to be used in conjunction with antidepressants but I was on antidepressants in the past and they all caused a manic reaction. Just recently Lexapro caused a manic reaction and I'd been on it for over 2 years. That's why I was hoping that others might of taken Abilify solely as an antidepressant...
