> I was so impatient, restless and frustrated that it was making me mad. Even when I cut the 10mg into thirds. Did you have this type of experience(this bad) when you first started Abilify?

Yes, I experienced akathisia when I first began Abilify treatment, though not as badly as you experienced. I average 3.75 mg daily (the range being 2.5 - 5.0 mg).

>How long did it take to go away?

Six months. I put up with the akathisia because at least I felt alive; Zyprexa made me feel dead.

>I'm not sure if I'm gonna start it back up.

Try 2.5 mg daily to start. It now comes in 5 mg tablets which can easily be split with a good pill cutter.

Good luck,
Lazarus
