I was on abilify for several months. I never felt dizzy or sick. Just slept for the better part of three days when I first started. I also had anxiety issues after I had achieved a therapeudic dose. Not the typical reaction though.
How long have you been on the meds. It may just be a passing thing. Many side effects diminish or disappear altogether after you've been on the med for awhile.

Hope you're feeling better soon.
Good judgement comes from experience and alot of that comes from bad judgement.

I started taking abilify last friday (6/30). I felt like total ***. I had hot and cold sweats, bad bad stomach ache, very sleepy, almost flu-like symptoms. So then I stopped taking it Sunday (7/2). I still felt sick, so then I decided maybe it was that I really was getting sick.

My doc said that if I was really tired from it, I should take it at night...so I just took it, and I'm about to go to bed. Hopefully, I won't be so tired tomorrow. I'm prescribed 5 mg abilify and 200 mg wellbutren. I love the wellbutren, hopefully the abilify will be just as great.

What are some of the symptoms you guy/gals seem to be experiencing? At the start, at the end and throughout?
