Hi,sgy! Feeling jittery is reported as a common (1 ~ 10% of users) side effect of initializing Abilify. For most people side effects only last a few days to several weeks, but be sure your doctor knows how you're feeling. It's possible a dosage adjustment is in order until you better metabolize the drug.

I never felt less jittery (akathisia is probably the right term here) as long as I took Abilify. The higher the dose, the worse it got. I had to stop it due to that and other problems (weight gain, etc.).
