    What are your experiences of side effects with taking Aripiprazole (Abilify)?
    I was on Risperidone. I had really bad side effects, the worst being gaining a lot of weight. Have any of you had weight gain whilst on Aripiprazole?
    I am really worried about taking it because of the bad experiences with Risperidone.

    Abilify i found did not have weight gain it did help to clear the thought process better It is usually used as a add on to another medication but has been used on its own
