Hi, I'm on Abilify for bi-polar disorder. I showed some psychotic symptoms such as hearing voices or the freaky premonitions I was getting on a regular basis. Abilify has helped me and I no longer have the horrendous nightmares that I did. The only problem I have is being very restlesss and fidgety but I tolerate that as I felt the positive effects outweighed the minor side effects. People around me noticed changes in me within 3 weeks or so. I did make sure I questioned the mental health doc about why I should take the meds and possible side effects, I also researched effects online before taking it. I tried getting by without meds for years and my bi-polar disorder nearly ruined my life and created a hectic and self-destructive lifestyle. I am starting to feel more part of the human race now.
