I was put on Ability 5mg for anxiety. It did not make me drowsy but I just feel weird and off and had insomnia. I know it says not to split the tablet but trying new medications makes me nervous. It’s part of my anxiety. Fear of taking meds. Why do the bottles say to never split?
Abilify - Will it be ok to split a tablet till I adjust to the medication.

Scored tablets have equal amounts of the medication in each half... if you split an unscored tablet you may not be getting even amounts.
Abilify may make some people drowsy but many others feel energized and have trouble sleeping. It's also not unusual to feel a little off your mark. These side effects tend to resolve over just a few days to a week or so.
It's important to stay in touch with your doctor when first starting this type of medication so give them a call and report your side effects. They'll give you advice that will help ease your anxiety over getting started.
Best regards and you'll be feeling better soon.
