I take Abilify 10 mg for Bipolar Disorder..well I've only been on Abilify for about a week and I can't stand the all over tired feeling I have sad Heck I can't even go to work without thinking of how much I'd rather be sleeping,I just feel exhausted 24/7 and this isn't how I want to live my life..I want to live life without feeling tired constantly. I need advice..I really want to stop taking the Abilify but I don't know if this excessive tiredness and fatigue is just a temporary side effect. Anybody else had experience taking Abilify? Any kind words are greatly appreciated..

    Hi, I found that I was like that at the start. It passes. I am on abilify 10mg too, and have been for 9 months. I have no tiredness on them now and I work too. Give it time x

    I feel your pain im on a med change at the moment and I feel like a zombie as soon as i wake up right up to 13.00. I applied for a new job which was offered to me...but there is no way I can except it right now. My quetiapine 25mg have taken over my body.

    I'm going to give it another 3 weeks if im still the same it's back to the drawing board. Queen I think you should stick it out. How your managing work is beyond me...Well done you deserve a medal.
