I have been on Lexapro 20mg for over 2 years without side effects.

Customer Question

I have been on Lexapro 20mg for over 2 years without side effects. It has not been working of late. My doc added 2.5 mg of Abilify about about three weeks ago. Since that time I have felt very agressive towards myself, towards others and even inanimate items.
Could this be a reaction caused by the Ability?

Hello, I am a psychiatrist.
It is possible that this is due to having added in the Abilify, but this kind of reaction to Abilify isn't common at all. That said, if you are definitely feeling different, and not in a good way, on the Abilify, please discuss it with your doctor ASAP.
