From this study (4 months ago):
Never had a NON FASTING blood glucose reading at any time over 125mg/l
Within 3 weeks of the adding of Ramipril and Triamterene HCTZ to my medications I experienced almost complete blindness over a weekend. The following Monday I went to my doctor and my blood glucose reading was 525mg/l. I have tried all medications (Janumet, Actos, Insulin) none have made any difference.

Tim J on Jul, 10, 2011:
I took this drug and it killed 40 percent of my achilles tendon.
George P on May, 7, 2012:
I developed torticollis soon after starting abilify. At the same time, I developed pain in my left side. An MRI revealed 4 ruptured disks in my spine, a known cause of torticollis.
Conclusion: I have no idea (neither, it seems, do the doctors). But I found abilify very effective for its purpose.
