My wife just started on 10mg abilify (upped from 7.5mg) and she is experiencing lethargy & fatigue. Is this normal? She's also on a handful of other meds (150mg of wellbutrin, Advair inhaler, and just took her off of benztropine for akathesia) but the extreme fatigue didn't start til she was upped from 7.5 to 10mg. Her inability to get going before 4 or 5pm (despite waking up at 7 or 8) is extremely frustrating and a little scary. The psychiatrist said severe fatigue shouldn't be caused by abilify, but I'm not so sure? Nothing seems to get her going no matter how hard she tries, she still spends the day fighting to not fall asleep.
Straight from thus Web sure, it says hyper somnia(increased sleeping) is a side effect. So why is her dr insisting it isn't.
