    I took abilify with my zoloft for 5 yrs...I felt great but the side effects about destroyed my marriage. I had an uncontrollable desire to gamble. Luckily I have a very loving husband. Stopped taking it 8 months ago. It took about a month for the urge to gamble to go away. I can honestly say, I have no desire to gamble again..

    I have been on Abilify for 3 years. It is like a miracle drug. In combination with Zoloft I am basically depression free. No dark lows and I feel better about myself than I have in years. Interested in getting out and being productive.

Dizziness and headache were added the second day of taking ... Show Full Comment
