  • From this study (5 years ago):

  • I just started taking Abilify, but I already find myself nauseous and unable to eat. My muscles are very sore and I have a terrible headache, but I'm not positive this is related to my medication. I also am having a hard time staying in one place or doing one thing without feeling the need to move around. But, when I stand up, I get extremely dizzy. I had preexisting hypotension, but my dizziness is much worse now. Lastly, I feel so overmedicated, but I guess it's better then being a manic mess.
