hello again, sickofpain. I would have to say that, no, I am not prone to side effects. I do experience them, but it does not seem to be nearly as extreme as others I have read about.
But try to keep in mind, if you do experience any side effects that they will probably/hoepfully go away within a month or month and a half or so. That is usually the amount of time that you should give a medication (at a therapuetic dose, of course) to begin to work and for side effects to wear off completely/or partially/or mostly.
Oh and I wanted to tell you that on a plus note that abilify has really helped my anxiety levels. I also had some anxiety, and it seems like you do too with your GAD, so I hope that the abilify alieviates your anxiety as well.
Keep us updated on how it is working for you and I will try to answer any more questions that you may have!
