It sounds like what you've said is an infection, did/do you have an ear infection? Dr's will only give you antibiotics for that. If you're not sure ask your doc. You've posted before that you've had the same thing, even before going Abilify - so personally I think it's something else, whether it's an ear issue or something else.Remember we can't diagnose you here, you need to see your Dr.
I take Klonopin .5 mg at night, and .5 mg in the morning. I just started taking Abilify a few weeks ago. A few years ago, I took Abilify, but had to stop due to restless leg syndrome. I had been started at 10 mg at that time. This time, the doctor started me at 2 mg once a day for two weeks, and then I will see him. I have not felt dizzy, nor experience the restless leg syndrome, at least not yet. Everyone experienced medication differently. As LeftCoastChick mentioned, you need to consult with you doctor regarding your particular symptoms. Good luck.
