I was on Abilify for just a month or so but unfortunately I had some major side effects and had to stop. The main problem I had with it was that it made me EXTREMELY restless! It was like I had total ADD and couldn't focus on ANYTHING for any amount of time. I couldn't even sit and watch my favorite programs on TV. It was a horrible experience for me, but I'm sure other people have been helped by it. BTW, Abilify is usually prescribed for schizophrenia and related mental illness.

I'm glad to hear you say that it made it hard for you to concentrate. I'll watch for that side effect. I am also on lexapro too.
