Well, I have been on Abilify 10-20 mg for ten years. I never had any hint of movement anomalies. My reading indicated to me that Abilify was less likely to produce TD than the other AAPs (except for, perhaps, clozapine), but more likely to produce akathisia. That Abilify works more in limbic rather than striatal motor structures would account for this. Also, as a partial agonist, Abilify should be less likely to produce supersensitization.

I can't guarantee anything, but these are the reasons why I have been comfortable taking Abilify.
