You are right. Abilify is not recommended alone.

As I told in my introduction:

" I was given Mirtazapine 15mg to help me sleep. Then the dose was upped to 30mg (don’t know why) and I got really weird side effects. Doctor didn’t believe me and the dose was upped to 45mg(!!!)"

So I first took Mirtazipine for mild depression and sleeping problems. When the dose was upped to 45mg I got suicidle and was forced to take Abilify. I took Mirtazapine about 6 weeks but didn´t have any erection problems while taking it. Doctor told me too stop Mirtazapine but continue with the Abilify alone. So I took Abilify 4 months and after that I got the PSSD symptoms.

But you said you took Brintellix too. And this is the only one you mentioned that is an serotonin reuptake inhibitor...

Yes, second time when I already had PSSD symptoms I took Brintellix 10mg for 3 weeks
