  • My brain felt great, but my body did not - experienced weight gain and severe constipation.
    Taken for: Depression
    Duration taken: A few months
  • Abilify caused severe constipation for me. To the point that I had to stop taking it. I tried everything that would normal help with constipation and none of it worked.

    Taken for: Depression
    Duration taken: A year or so
  • I found taking it in the late afternoon helps better than before bed. Also try your best to avoid alcohol, weed (or harder drugs) and cigarettes - from personal experience it all messes with your brain and make it less effective.

  • Caused me excessive tiredness. But effective for controlling thoughts and mood. No appetite change, and no ortho static hypotension unlike Seroquel/Quetiapine, Risperdal/Risperidone

  • Rapid weight gain. So not worth it.

    Taken for: Depression
  • This med was so amazing for about 2 months. I wanted to socialize again, start projects, and do tasks. I was happy. The feelings slightly resembled hypomania but I never did anything unhealthy during the "up" times. Then my body became tolerant all of a sudden and I crashed into a devastating depression 2 months later. Starting and tapering off the drug caused SEVERE nausea and appetite problems for me. So disappointing.

    Taken for: Depression
  • Sexual side effects, agitated often (dreaded taking showers because I knew I'd have to stand still for more than a few minutes which is a weird thing to dread), sensitive to light, triggered manic type thoughts and actions. However people said I was noticeably happier and more agreeable.

    Taken for: Depression
  • It made me impulsive,aggressive, twitch, messed with my heart, agitated, gave me migraine headaches, made me restless and see spots. I couldn't get off it and overdosed to get off it experiencing the side effects times a million.

  • I take it at bedtime because it helps me sleep. It can energize some people, but it relaxes me which is a plus in my book. I did gain weight from it (about 20 pounds) the first year, but I've lost it all. I've been on it for over 5 years
