    Dear Sun and Moon,

    I take abilify, (and an antidepressant), and I take cogentin (benztropine mesylate) to control the side effects--I shake because of the abilify. With a different medication, I had tardive dyskinesia.

    (Does the doctor say whether or not the medication should be taken with a meal? My doctors always encourage me to take my meds with a meal.)

    Could you ask you son's doctor if he should take the abilify with food? I ask this because sometimes food diminishes the side effects of the medication.
