  • Having Tardive Dyskinesia is reallya a bad experience. It's hard to get rid of, and is worse than having depression. I would not take these drugs. I shake all the time.

    I have been looking into this and wondered if I have Parkinsons Disease or if its just from the Abilify.. Sounds like my tremors in m y neck and head are related to the use of the Abilify after seeing some of the stats. But now the questons remains - how to get off ablify to see if the tremors stop?????????

    I have been told by my psychiatrist that the tardive dyskenisia I have is from the Abilify I take. I was on it for almost 2 years and then, all of a sudden, I have the WORST tremors in my hands. I can't write, can hardly hold a phone because the tremors jiggle the phone around and I only get about 1./2 of the conversation. I don't know what else to do because the doctor says he wants to keep me on it "a little longer" because my mood is not stable. I guess at this point it's just a "wait and see" game.

    Hi, i am 17 years old and i was put on Abilify a couple of years ago. Abilify caused me to have muscle twitches escpecially around my eyes and my hands would also shake sometimes. i would get bad leg cramps during the night which would cause me to wake up in pain. i soon got off abilify and all my symtoms stopped. But every now and then i still get muscle twitches. i assume what your experiencing Tammy 55 is the side effects of Abilify. Abilify can cause long term affects even years after you stop the medication. i suggest since your experiencing these symtoms you should discontinue the medication before its to late. i hope i was helpful. have a good day.

    I took abilify and experienced the worst experience of my life. Even considering all of my depression my time on abilify was my one instance in which I wanted hospitalization. If I had a knife in my presence I'd surely be dead.
