    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.
