... were you put on? I have been on some sort of antipsychotic drug for over 25 years and have had brain damage done by my frontal lobes. ALL antipsychotic drugs cause atrophy of the frontal lobes which makes it harder to socialize.
Although Abilify is not classified as addictive your body may have become use to it. It is recommended that you do not stop Abilfy abruptly. See you doctor if you wish to stop.
Your doctor should recommend a slow tapering of the drug to reduce the chances of experiencing unpleasant withdrawal symptoms such as insomnia, nausea, lightheadedness, headaches and bipolar symptoms.
