Hello out there, community members
I recently started Abilify in addition to Viibryd (which I started in January). Prior to Janiary I was taking Cymbalta. Has anyone made this particular switch? Has anyone been on the combination I am currently on? I would like some thoughts to see how others feel they responded. Thanks!

I have been taking Cymbalta for almost six years, I am a severe rapid cycling bipolar 1.

I took Abilify and it was a disaster, it caused Tardive Dyskenesia which I still battle today.

What exactly are you battling, if you explain, I can probably give you help.

JLWicky replied to doxielover10's response:
I am being treated for generalized anxiety disorder and major depressive disorder. I was pretty low when I started the Cymbalta, and it helped a great deal for about 1.5 years. Then I just started feeling like I had no "get up and go." I wasn't particularly sad or anything, I just felt like doing nothing but sleeping when I wasn't at work. So my doctor switched my to Viibryd, and it helped me have a little more spunk, but it wasn't doing anything for my anxiety. Instead of doing nothing but sleeping, I was unable to sleep because my mind was going a million miles an hour worrying and planning. That is when she added the Abilify, and it seems to have leveled me out. I am not familiar with tardive dyskenesia. What is it and how commonly are people on Abilify affected? Thanks so much for your response!
