    I'm starting this med, and kind of nervous about it. If you've taken it can you please give me your experiences with this med? Also I read that it is for Bipolar/Schizophrenia would this mean I have been diagnosed with one of these? It is definitely for mental health but I haven't been given a diagnosis?

    I've taken it, it was really stimulating for an antipsychotic and I had a lot of trouble falling asleep when I took it.

    It is for bipolar and schizophrenia but I have neither and also took it so you don't necessarily have either.

    I'm on aripiprazole and it really suits me. No dodgy side effects, got rid of 90% of the voices I hear and has generally led to me becoming far more stable

    Took is as an augmenting agent to my antidepressant, worked okay but gave me insomnia.
