I'm taking abilify, wellbutrin and ativan and I've noticed that I suddenly seem very slow and stupid.  Things I whizzed through before are taking enormous amounts of time.  I really don't think it's the Ativan, I've been on benzos for a long time and haven't noticed this effect, maybe the Abilify?  Is anyone else on Abilify having this problem?
Good judgement comes from experience and alot of that comes from bad judgement.
You just have to accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue.

I know it is earlly to say, but I definetly feel slowed down on 20mg of Abilify. I have been on it about 3 weeks, and the symptoms were much better when I was on 10mg. I feel tired/weak and my thoughts are fuzzy. I just talked to my pdoc's nurse this morning, and I am gonna go back down to 10mg a day.
I am not sure if this helps, but I would definetly talk to your pdoc when you get a chance. Best Wishes!
