is abilify hard on anyone's eyes? I take that and lyrica, and both seem to really limit my time on the computer and even watching tv. Anything help?

Hmmm, I haven't noticed anything with my eyes while on abilify. But that's definitely worth mentioning to your doc.

My psychiatrist brought this one up to me... I'm already on an AD and she said you just take it alongside the AD and she thinks it could help. Is it effective for you guys using Abilify? And what are the side effects (if any) other than this eye thing you mentioned?

I noticed some shortness of breath and some additional nervousness with Abilify. What dose are you on?

I was on Abilify 5mg and had no problems. If you're having eye trouble, though, I would definitely see your doctor right away.

@Quaker: I was on Wellbutrin and Luvox and the doctor suggested Abilify as an add-on because he thought I had slightly manic tendencies. When it worked (it doesn't anymore), it worked well.
