It didn't make me manic, but I got akathesia. My Pdoc rx'd me Cogentin and it immediately made the akathesia go away.

Abilify and Lithium pulled me out of the worst psychotic, mixed episode I've ever had.

I currently take Abilify. It doesn't make me manic. It's different for each person. I also take a mood stabilizer so it controls the mania.

It helped me a little but I've just started a low dose. Before ability I couldn't listen to music of any sort because my brain was so scattered and manic. I can now listen to music again after abilify.

Abilify caused my penis to ejaculate once. I reeled away from the notion of it happening twice. Later, I keggeled two out and somewhere in this timeline I had nocturnal coitus with a xenomorph cosplaying an Amari.

Abilify made me pace incessantly which made it extremely hard to sleep. Still, it's hard to tell whether the pacing was due to mania or medication-induced akathisia. Treated with abilify it took me several months to really recover enough to get a job etc, treated with lithium I recovered in just a few weeks. I also found abilify very blunting at the higher doses. Not the drug for me, I know a lot of people love it though.
