So I have been in zoloft 150 mg for 4 years and it doesn't work,so just 2 days ago I was prescribed abilify 2 mg,,I'm a nervous wreck to take any kind of new meds so it was a struggle fore to take my first pill,,has anyone taken this and had success,,please no horror stories because it will lead me to panic,but if you have any success stories that would be great,,I stupidly googled it and saw that it was mainly for bipolar and schizophrenia so I'm kinda freaked out

I don't have any experience but I always hear good things about it and even the reviews online are mostly positive reviews and ppl say it works fast .... Everyone on here is gonna give you the "well everyone is differnt" speech so whatever but my uncle had a good experience when he added it to his Paxil

I don't have any direct experience either, but I asked a friend who takes it and she said it was life changing for her. She said that not only did she stop crying every day, but it also ended her lifelong insomnia because she was so much less anxious. And of course without the insomnia her anxiety really improved.

Get better! Try it!

Yes, Shan, I have a friend who takes it and it has been a really big help to her.  She started last Fall and has been doing so much better.

Good luck, and stay strong,

Julie

I'm kind of at the opposite end of this.  I'm just starting zoloft after 9 weeks on lexapro didn't help.   

Are you saying you've taken zoloft for 4 years and had anxiety the entire 4 years?  That is what terrifies me...

Yes I have been on zoloft for 4 years and it did nothing,,but don't be terrified because the only reason that happened to me was because my doc was a idiot who literally didn't remember me everytime I went to see her, I should have been switched to a new med after a month but she didn't pay any attention to me and I didn't know any better,this is why I am seeing a new doc and they wanted to switch me right away,,so don't worry,this won't happen to you,I just needed a new med and my doctor wasn't a good one,,so please don't be terrified

Abilify was a big help for me. Puts on a bit of weight for some people, like me. Works fast too. Good luck.
