My son has taken Foclin 10mg and 15mg i found that it works for about 8 hours out of the day so when he is at school everything is good. Once i would pick up my son he would be so wound up that it would be hard for him to sleep at night. I really have to say that I did not find anything bad about it. My son was taking it to help controll his adhd, and the doctor said that it would supress his appitiate. It was also to help him sleep. For the Abilify I am not sure about it sorry.
