Has anyone ever taken Aripiprazole also known as Abilify? What were your side effects? And what’s your overall opinion on the medication?

Hi! I was on abilify along with a few other medications so it was hard to tell which was working and what side effects I was given but I do remember being a bit irritable than usual! It’s a good medication. Works differently for everyone though but it’s important to give it up to 6 weeks to work!

I'm a week in on the low dose (plan to increase next week). I'm only noticing a reduction in sleep hours which isn't helping. However my low mornings are not quite as bad, though still not good. Apparently you have to give it about 6 weeks to really notice any difference.
