I started taking abilify about a month ago. It makes me feel very normal and back to my old self except the depression still is present. I also get higher anxiety so my doctor prescribed me with Buspar, a quick-acting anti-anxiety drug. I have lost eight pounds so far because eating makes me sick and I gag about everything now. And it does not help as much as I would like. But it makes me sleep great and I can concentrate very well in school. I also am not shaky like when I first started the pills so hopefully things will be getting better.
