Abilify gives me the upmood to make me get going to work in the morning. To minimize tiredness in the morning, I take lexapro about an hour before going to bed. This morning/night placement of these two drugs gives me mental stability without the tiredness that lexapro normally gives me. Taking lexapro in the morning makes me tired and yawning all day.

For the most part it has helped along with Cymbalta, but the side effects out weigh the benefits so I quit taking it. I still get tension in my jaw area and it gives me headaches. I take Trazodone to help me sleep, but still have trouble. After reading some of these other reviews I'm going to cut the dosage down from 10mg to 5mg and see how that works.

I had very bad side effects with this medication. Involuntary muscler spasms and very blurred vision. Took it for only a week and after three days off abilify I'm still not back to normal,

My pre-teen daughter who is Bi-Polar with ADD went through many different meds and was put on Abilify. The drug was great at evening out her mood however she gained over 30lbs in 2 months. I really gave her an appetite.
