When it came out my psychiatrist wanted me to try it because nothing was working for me. She said that a lot of people are able to manage their Bipolar with Abilify alone- if they tolerate it. I was happy to give it a try, but I quickly developed severe akathisia, or what I called 'itchy muscles'. It was just uncomfortable. Not everyone who takes Abilify gets it, though.

I was on Abilify for a few weeks but found I couldn't sleep when taking them.  I was up most of the night so my pdoc switched me to Seroquel.  Just my experience...
