my husband is taking it with the ability and it has messed him up. He has memory lose and can't remember what day or week it is. He can't even concentrate on what he is doing or saying. He also repeats hiself. He didn't do this until he started taking this med. I will def. look into trying to see if there is anything else he can take with the abilify.

This drugged saved me from some pretty serious side effects of Abilify. The muscle spams are more manageable and the stuttering also. We tried to decrease the abilify to 5 mg but even that was too strong. Cogentin was given by injection at the ER. I have a Rx now.

This has helped with the horrible restlessness that I got from Abilify. It is not too easy to use, just because I have to take it 3 times a day. Suuuper dry moutha and I havent been remebering things well either.

It worked great, but the negative side effects such as blurred vision and memory problems, are a little tough to handle. But, the drug does what it is suppose to do.
