    My dr. just upped my dosage of abilify from 15 mg to 30 mg. Does that dosage seem like a lot? I am also taking remeron, lithium, xanax and prozac. whats the max dose of abiify offered?

    Abilify has a maximum dosage of 30 mg a day.

    Since the General Forum is for difficult child issues, I'm going to move this thread over to the Watercooler.

    The remeron....what is that for? The abilify is to help control the mania. How long have you been on the 15 mg? Has it helped control it?

    Remeron is for depression. I have been on the 15 of abilify for 4 months and it hasnt helped thats why she raised it to 30. I wasnt sure what the max was.

    So you are on three different medications for depression? Plus Abilify for mania and Xanax for anxiety? It seems redundant. What's the dosage of the Lithium?

    Lithium is 300mg in the am and 600mg in the pm. Remeron is for depression 15mg, xanax 1 mg 3x day, prozac for depression 40mg.

    Remeron and prozac for depression
    lithium and abilify for bipolar (mood stabilizer)
