I'm taking this medication for bipolar and it's a miracle drug. I've been on it for 1.5 years taking 300mg 1 x daily. When I first started it, the side effects were tingling in feet, memory issues, diarrhea and weight loss. All have slowly gone away. I started taking Topamax for my manic issues and was on Abilify before this which didn't help at all. In the beginning, the side effects were harsh but they seem to go away after a few weeks. The only side effect which scared me the most was hair loss, and this went away after I changed my diet. All in all, my mood is stable and I'm doing much better then when I was on Abilify. Abilify made me put on enormous weight which I have lost since I made the switch to Topamax.
