  • From this study (8 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.

    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.
