will abilify help u get to sleep?
1 Dec 2009
Abilify is an antipsychotic. It's used for agitation and mania and is used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. It should not be prescribed for just sleep. It has both drowsiness and insomnia as possible known side effects. If you need help getting to sleep, I'd ask the doctor for a sedative. Hope this answers your question.
