I was on Abilify for about 4 months. I didn't get the bad symptoms you got, but I came to the conclusion that the drug was a joke and no more effective than a sugar pill.

It did no good so I stopped taking it. I was on a moderate dosage and I quit cold turkey. (I had no problems with this, but that doesn't mean you won't)

I'm just giving you my cold turkey experience. If you are going to stop then just to be safe you could cut the tabs in half and move down real slow like that. That way at least if you start feeling bad then some the the drug will still be in your body.
