Please respond if you have experienced feeling extremely restless and/or increased agitation while taking Abilify.  I cannot sit still and it is the worst feeling ever.  I am going crazy, my body feels so awful right now.  I started taking Abilify two weeks ago and this side effect has really kicked in over the last few days.  It's getting worse day by day.

Hello Mogli,

I have had the same thing happen to me when I was on Abilify, mine happened after being on it for a few months. You should contact your pdoc asap, that is one of the serious symptoms you should report to your dr. Please let us know how things are going, and hang in there!

I got manic this summer on Abilify. That's how I ended up in the hospital. They took me off it right away.

I'm back on it now, but on a much lower dose, and only after being promised by my pdoc that we would watch it very carefully.

Be well :heart:
