I'm not sure where to start but here goes. I did a stupid thing and decided to decrease the dose of my medication from 10mg Abilify to 5mg. Nothing happened but after about 2 weeks I started pacing like anything. I would pace for hours. I know this is not withdrawal symptoms as I was pacing like this when I first started at the low dose. I even had the energy to walk this much and more on Zyprexa. The pacing subsided with the increase of medication.
At one point the Abilify was giving me too many side effects at 10mg so we decided to cut it down to 5mg and add respiridone 1mg to the mix. But that made things worse because now I couldn't sleep either.
So I stayed on 5mg Abilify alone and increased the dose once the side effects lessened.
