When I started Abilify, it sedated me right to sleep for the first two days I took it. I had been told that I could take it at night if that happened, so I switched my dosing schedule. Then, a few days later, I was up all night playing minesweeper on the computer. It happened again the next night, so I switched back to mornings. Now, I don't notice any unpleasant side effects, although I definately do have more energy and a desire to keep busy at something. This is actually a good thing, because I have had a tendency to "zone out" and not get anything done for years, which I blamed on my medication. The bottom line is that I really like it. Fortunately, I have insurance that covers everything except a $2.00 co-pay per prescription.
