    jannie trying to survive....

    Sorry she's having such a rough day...It sounds like she has been up and down. I am aware that you have spent the last two weeks or so weaning off of abilify....but I don't remember reading why you stopped this medication. What were the negative side effects from abilify? Also, what was her highest dosage?

    we stopped the medication because the dr felt it wasn't doign it's job after almost 2 mos. her anxiety was thru roof. it seemed as though the sleeping patterns and mania ceased and calmed yet the anxiety went too high up. that's when he decided he wasn't comfortable with the diagnosis of BiPolar (BP) and anxiety disorder and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). i've tried several BiPolar (BP) antipyshcotic medications and none have done the job teh way their supposed to.

    she was only on 5mg we started at 2 then upped it 4th day into it. this is the point where the pysch said to me i think she needs a full pysch evaluation. we're gong on 2/27 - 2/30 at columbia in new york city. we're staying at a hotel in jersey will take the shuttle daily to hospital for testing.

    so we just have to get thru until then. she's been up and down all day. took her to my best friends today our kids played it was great she was very well behaved for most part until she spotted doll we had given that was originally my daugther's she didn't want it. she began crying it got so bad we had to leave she would'nt stop.

    what had happened was she was on all sorts of diff medications on seroquel and chlondine at night for 5 mos worked well then suddenly huge weight gain and rash old pyshc pulled her off, then i said ok i'm going to try it natural now and see what happens. no drugs special diet strict routine she flourished amazingly so socially adn all it lasted for about 3 mos. then suddenly with no warning she began failing school needy clingy insecure paranoid self conscious a mess generally speaking anxiety ridden school said she needed an immediate evaluation. so we went to new pysch who diagnosed her with BiPolar (BP) and anxiety disorder and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

    round and round we go.............:)

    sorry school said immediate intervention. that's what kills me about it she did great for 3 mos with no medications and then suddenly without warning it all changed completely and totally. i've heard that's how BiPolar (BP) is though a constant merry go round that confuses everyone in it's path. she tends to have mixed states can go up and down thru course of day, happy sad etc.
