    Call your doctor if you have high fever, stiff muscles and confusion to address a possible life threatening condition or if you have uncontrollable muscle movements as these can become permanent. High blood sugar has been reported with Abilify and medicines like it and in extreme cases can lead to coma or death.

    Smoke weed? The only side effects are you may get arrested and have your life ruined.
    Drink alcohol, because it is legal. It makes you smart, sexy, and an excellent driver.

    That wouldn’t work, Cynthia. There would be too many possible side effects.
