I noticed my depression was starting to get a little worse with more crying when in a discussion so I asked my dr to increase my Pristiq. I am already at the max dose they carry (100mg) so he added Abilify as an ''add on" to my Pristiq 12 days ago. It seems to be helping my depression, but I seem to be having either side effects or maybe relapse from the MS. Sunday and Monday, I was laying down and would get these dizzy spells that last for 5-10 seconds. I get these on occasion but not more than once like they were happening these last days. I have also been more tired than usual...hard for me to look at computer/phone screen for more than 15-20 minutes. Not sure if this is a relapse or a problem with the Abilify. Has anyone used Abilify as an antidepressant or add on?
What antidepressants are you on that work? I have been on Effexor in the past but that stopped working so was put on Pristiq and had that adjusted periodically over the last 6 or 7 years. I am thinking of asking for a different med instead of the Abilify add on.
Thanks in advance everyone,
