My therapist wants me to stop 2.5mg olanzapine and start 2.5mg Abilify. I tried stopping and my anxiety went through the roof as well as restlessness. How can I make it an easier transition?
How do I transition from 2.5 olanzapine to 2.5 Abilify?

Did your therapist prescribe these medications and how long have you been taking olanzapine?
Even at a low dose you should never stop this drug abruptly or you risk withdrawal symptoms.
You need professional advice on how to wean slowly off the medication and how to begin taking the Abilify.
Best regards and I hope you feel better quickly.
