I've been off Abilify for about 3 weeks now, and have flu-like symptoms. Is that normal and how long will it last?

Its is normal to experience withdrawl from Abilify, especially if you stopped taking it sudenly. You should have tapered off of it slowly and with a doctor's help because even more severe withdrawl symptoms could occur. Talk with your doctor for further assistance, but I don't think the symptoms you are experience will last much longer. Do ask your doctor though. Good luck.
