    After several years on abilify I developed Tardive Dyskinesia a terrible involuntary movement disorder. Especially involving the tongue. It started off with a lip quiver and clucking my tongue on top of my mouth. I was taken off the medication and continue to have problems with tongue thrusting and movements that cause me to bite my tongue, sometimes severely. I had painful soars on top of my tong ...

    I took this a few years ago after watching the ads on TV for it to help those already on an antidepressant. I noticed no difference, except woke up in the kitchen floor after passing out for the first time in my life.

    I started having paranoia and hallucinations recently so my psychiatrist added 5mg pill of Abilify. I have experienced drooling, face drooping, excessive crying and impulses to cry while speaking. Iâ??m electing to go off of this medication to try something different. It did help me seem more focused but the side effects arenâ??t worth it! I HATE Abilify!

    I started by taking 10 mg once a day. Within 4 days I noticed a remarkable difference in my depression. For the first time I felt like going out and felt full of energy. Since I started taking anti depressants over 30 years ago this medication has made the biggest difference in my life. I started taking in without any promises and was amazed with the results. I would recommend it to someone suffer ... Show Full Comment
