liveoak Posted January 30, 2008 Share Posted January 30, 2008 I've been on 5mg Abilify for 2 months. I find that I have a strange anxiety. I feel like a deer in the headlights, like I'm frozen in fear, not physically, but emotionally. When I see friends who are glad to see me and hug me, I feel nothing. I feel nothing toward my dogs, whom I normally dote on. When I am with people and they are laughing, I laugh with them, but it's totally fake, because I feel nothing, nothing at all. Is this a common side effect of Abilify? Pdoc said on the phone that Abilify can cause anxiety that is "difficult in specific ways," but he didn't name the ways. Anyone else experience something similar on Abilify? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
