Default Side Effects

Hi everyone. I have been on Abilify for about three weeks. In such a short time I have already noticed that many of my symptoms have diminished. I was put on this medication because I was experiencing severe anxiety that bordered on paranoia. I am in my 50s and never experienced such awful symptoms as extreme fear. I have suffered depression all my life and thought it couldn't get worse...but, anxiety can be more taxing than depression, for me. I think it is all in the degrees that a person suffers from psychiatric disorders that determine what is worse.

Anyway, the problems I am having with Abilify, despite the positive gains, are I am feeling drowsy and also emotionless. There is a slight feeling of being in a straight jacket that is extremely uncomfortable. I only feel it on occasion. If it were with me constantly, I would immediately go off this drug.

I would really appreciate any feedback on side effects that people are experiencing and if, after time passes, the sides diminish or go away completely.
