Hi my name is Trisha, and my provider just put me on Abilify today. I am already on a ton of meds. I used to take Risperdal a long while back, and it worked, but it made me gain a ton of weight. As soon as I was taken off of it, I dropped all of the weight. I am scared that the Abilify will do the same thing... Can someone please tell me what Abilify is for and what the side effects may be??? Or if u are on it does it minimize anxiety and help with sleep at all??? Thank u for any help.
