    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.

    I have been battling depression and anxiety problems for half my life. My doctor added Abilify to my medications (Wellbutrin SR, Xanax, Topamax [for migraine disorder] and Nexium [for GERD]). I felt no change the first few days, but didn't expect to because he started me on the lowest dosage. After a couple days I started feeling general achiness like the flu was coming on.
