Has anyone ever switched from Seroquel to Abilify?

What was your reaction, if I may ask?

I switched from Abilify to seroqeul. We just stopped the abilify completely and started Seroquel with no problems at all. The abilify did absolutely nothing for the manic episode. Seroquel is my wonder drug. I have known several people who are on Abilify and they love it and it works great for them. Individual people have their preference on drugs. I know I did not answer your question - but it's half answered lol.
Good luck,
Jacqui

Hi Ms P,

I have switched from seroquel to abilify (i have posted a thread in this part of the forum), while i am doing well mentaly wise, the side effects are less than pleasing. I guess what works for one person may not work so well for the next.
