Abilify Injection & Blurry Vision

Anyone else getting blurry vision? I recently switched to the shot and after about 2 weeks I noticed my vision getting blurry. I went to my PCP and they said everything checked out normal as far as blood work and vitals. My psychiatrist says it’s likely not from the medication so I went to an eye doctor today and they prescribed me new glasses which I’ve never worn glasses before, but definitely my vision showed to need a script. I know it’s not all in my head. I’m wondering if others out there on Abilify are having similar symptoms.

Cheers,
Summer

I am on Aripiprazole(Abilify) pills and have noticed blurry vision before. I think some of my up close blurry vision is just related to aging but some of it may be abilify as well. Either I have gotten used to it or I don’t get it as much now because I don’t notice it like I used to.

I notice blurred vision from my Abilify pills about 45min-1hour after I take them. Only noticed it when I went up to 20mg and it’s part of the reason I take it at night now. The blurred vision is gone by the time I wake up in the morning
