Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Thanks for bringing your question to JustAnswer.
It sounds as though the antidepressant they've chosen for him is not working. Help him get back to a psychiatrist to see if adding Abilifiy will help the Zoloft work better, or if it's time to switch him to another antidepressant. It can be hard to know which one a person's depression will respond to, so it may take a couple of changes to get the exact medication and dosage that will help. Also it would be good to help him find a therapist to talk to while he's waiting to go back into rehab. Make sure the therapist is certified to treat addictions, and specializes in this kind of work.
