I don't think three days is enough time to tell much for most people - they say 2 - 3 weeks. I am very sensitive and I can usually feel a difference immediately when I begin a new med. Most times, one medication isn't enough - sounds as though your doctor is starting you out on one medication at a time. When do you see him next?

I just reviewed a few websites about sweating and Abilify, and they have stated that it is one of the serious side effect to the med and should be discussed with your pdoc asap. Below are links that might be helpful.

Please let us know how things go.
