I am sorry you had a bad experience with Abilify. I am curious as to your goal with these threads? Are you attempting to dissuade others from trying this drug? Are you attempting to convince those who are successfully taking it to stop?

Your experience cannot be generalized to the general population and although some people will experience some of the negative side effects you did, others will not.

My own experience has been positive. The antidepressant benefits have been much more durable for me than with regular antidepressants. I have experienced NO akathisia, startup insomnia resolved itself, and the cognitive effects aren't bad at a low dose. I credit it (plus Lamictal) with allowing me to work and play.

I would encourage people who, in consultation with their doctors, are considering this drug to be aware of POSSIBLE side effects, try it, and see how it works out for them. We are all individuals.
