Welcome Angel to our group. I have not taken abilify, but I have read that that can be a possible side effect. I hope you find this site a friendly, safe and informative site. We all are living with this disorder and can completely understand. Please keep posting...

I take Abilify and have had no weight gain. It's been weight neutral. No gain, no loss. I am on a diet and am losing weight, so it is not affecting me. It's a wonder drug for me. I've not had any manic episodes since taking it. I hope it works out for you as it has for me.

I have not been on Abilify but I know someone who has and he did experience a little weight gain. But he played around with his dosage so much that its hard to explain whether he or not did have any real side effects.

Welcome aboard!!! Abilify turned me fat as a cow not to mention I got hit with side effect and was rushed to hospital and almost died.

Now I take Geodone as an anti psychotic and there is no weight gain.
