Yes, I have.  It does have a long half life like jt said, so if you were to feel any changes, they might not show up at first.  I didn't have a problem with abilify, going up or down in dose over the years, but sometimes I could feel a difference after a few days, and would have to go back up or down (depending on how if the dose had been increased or decreased).  Have you been on it for a long time?

 

FWIW ... ie, I know prozac isn't an antipsychotic, but to put in reference of also having a long half life, I weaned down off of prozac and was fine for about 2 weeks.  After that I started to feel withdrawal effects.  If I had only been on the prozac for a small amount of time, I probably wouldn't feel any withdrawal.  But because I've been on it for 23 years, it will take awhile to get out of my system, at least according to my pdoc.
