Tried Abilify at 10mg. Akathisia was horrible. Wanted to jump out of a moving car. Lowered dosage to 5mg. Akathisia not so bad but still something I couldn't tolerate.
Lowered dosage to 2.5mg. Akathisia symptoms went away. But so did most of the positive affects of the abilify; increased motivation, elevated mood and return of libido. Sad but better than nothing.
Son is taking 7.5 mg of Abilify with no adverse side effects.
