From this study (9 months ago):
Prozac literally makes me want to kill a bunch of people. Doctor made me get off of it, and I did. I feel much better now. I want to see if anyone else had these symptoms. I turned into a stone cold person. It was insane the feeling I got from being on it. Almost like I was demented.
From this study (2 years ago):
Did I probably have serotonin syndrome?

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.
