i am currently taking 15 mg of Abilify. I have been told that anything under 10 mg won't do much of anything. the usual dose of Abilify is 15-30 mg for OCD and/or bipolar disorder and up to 100 for schizophrenia. i haven't noticed any sedating effects from the Abilify (i do take it at night), although i was put on it right after stopping Risperdal, so i can only compare it to how tired i felt on the risperdal.

i have noticed a little agitation when i started taking the Abilify after being off of it for a while at one point--that went away after a few days. but that is about it. i haven't noticed any other side effects from it, that is why i like it, but everybody does respond differently to meds-so i can't swear that you won't have noticeable side effects.

hope this helps.
