I told my pdoc that my sleeping habits had become bizarre. I was sleeping 4 hours one night, then 20 the next, etc. He gave me 5.0 mg/day of Abilify.

Now I'm sleepng 20+ hours EVERY day. I think he was under the impression that I had insomnia because of the 4 hour sleeping shifts, and because he seems to have entirely missed what I said about the 20 hour sleeping shifts.

I've seen other posts in this thread suggesting that anxiety and insomnia are side-effects of Abilify. I get the anxiety all right, but mainly because I can't get out of bed for more than 3-4 hours per day; and when I do, my arms and legs feel like lead weights. It's scary, especially the pounding heart when I try to move around much.

My experience is that Abilify is worse than a dud - it's a land mine that knocks me off my feet big time.
