Hello I am 19 and I have been diagnosed with scrupulosity which is a form of OCD and it has caused me to go into a depression, I had thoughts of suicide and didn't want to get out of bed. My doctor put me on 10mg of Lexapro and 2mg of Abilify. I feel that my social skils have suffered since all of this happened to me and I was wondering if you think my medication with start to kick in fully soon. I have been on the abilify for 4 weeks exactly and the lexapro for about a month and a half. Has anyone experienced the same kind of issue? thanks so much for your help, I just want to get better and live life to the fullest.

Give the Lexapro about 2 - 2.5 months (on an equal dose) and it probably won't get better than that. I don't know about Abilify.

Abilify has been the worst medication I have been on yet. It made me very paranoid and jumpy.

Abilify didnt do squat for me except make it heavier on the wallet.

Abilify did not do much for me either.
As for Lexapro, I was maxed out at 20mg. It didn't do enough for me. That was when I was switched to Paxil.

Abilify isn't doing much for me. I guess I'm not really depressed anymore, which is nice, but it makes me feel duller and less motivated to speak.
