I was on Abilify. All I got was headache, extreme drowsiness, and akathisia.

I looked at the PI Sheet (though I'm no expert at that):

http://www.bms.com/cgi-bin/anybin.pl?sql=s...101&key=PPI

And they do list Abdominal Discomfort, Musculoskeletal Stiffness, and Pain along with Tachycardia in their med vs placebo reactions.

Out of your symptoms, the one I'd be worried about is the chest pain. Sometimes I get muscle chest pain, and that's no big deal..

But if it's your heart - that is something to worry about.

If it were me, I'd call the doc just to make sure.

i had severe abdominal pain on abilify... because i was insanely constipated.

do the chest pains feel like they could be anxiety? (same with abdominal actually, anxiety can cause abdominal pain.)

abilify can be activating, which can cause anxiety for some people.

since starting abilify i get this horrible tightening of my chest muscles that feels like a heart issue but isn't, very bad periods, and lost about 10lbs (and while i think i'm fat, i know that being almost down to 100lbs isn't fat).

Blurred vision is a common side effect. Tests showed that compared with placebo there was double the chance of having blurred vision on abilify. I have it too ;)
