I take Abilify in the morning.

I find Abilify to be a bit stimulating, so I don't want to take it late in the day (and be up all night).

Hello,

My pdoc told me to take 5 mg, in the morning and 10 mg at bed time, this last, with 7.5 mg of Remeron.

Thanks.

I was told to take it in the morning as supposedly it can be activating for some people. I have not had this effect yet, but wish I did.

I currently take Abilify in the morning but have not found it activiating yet. As such, I think I will start taking it at night as it makes me rather sleepy and restless. I figure I'll sleep the worst of it off.

I take 20mg at night. Since going up to this dose I am edgy at all times when I'm awake and my anxiety is no better. I am also on Remeron and Paxil.

I am on 2mg of Abilify - I am currently being weaned off this medication. This medication has not helped me at all, as an adjunct to my SSRI.

I am on 5mg of Abilify. Twice daily. One in the morning, one at night. This medication may not be perfect, but it has helped me so much. I have tried getting off and trying new things, I was a train wreck. Only symptoms is extreme hunger which causes weight gain for me.

I took mine in the morning for about 5-6 weeks and experienced high energy levels, then moved to the evening because I was feeling very sleepy and tired. I've been taking at night for about 1 week and still feel sleepy during the day.

Even though Abilify is a little sedating for me, I take it in the morning because I was told to take it at a different time of day from my effexor due to a racing heartbeat after taking them at the same time.

Hiya there, I take my 20mg dose of Abilify in the late afternoon about 4pm. I go to to bed at 4pm see.

It helps me the following day when I wake up. My tablet wears off late evening and I'm in a bad way and can't do anything. So I'm best to take it late afternoon. Thank you.

Although I voted evening, I have recently changed to the mornings as I dose up with Mirtazapine in the mornings too. I found this combination too sedating at night and slept through my alarm when I had a very important meeting to go to in the morning! As it is just going a week from switching, this is the first night where I am tired but can't sleep.
