Comment:
This drug worked well to control my moods and to reduce psychotic episodes w/hallucinations , however after a week or so on the drug i began having uncontrollable muscle spasms and could not sit in one spot for more than a few minutes at most,this was very frustrating because i could not control the urge to pace around all the time.

Comment:
This is a better treatment for bipolar, schizophrenia is more of an incureable disease. The mood stablizing that this drug offers is useful when becomeing used to the symptoms associated with schizophrenia... It is not a cure all and there is no cure for something that is not caused by an chemical imbalance. However like I said it may ease the emotional symptoms, and cause weight gain etc.

Abilify decreased all of my symptoms, both physical and mental when a host of other medications did nothing. I can now live without physical hallucinations and distorted thoughts. It took too long for this, I just wish it was affordable ($1200 for 3 months).
