I read that Abilify can affect your blood sugar and these symptoms feel like a blood sugar crash because they often happen after meals.
Abilify may well be causing your symptoms, but probably not because your glucose levels are too low. It causes high blood sugar.
It's hard for me to concentrate and I can't function at work because I feel half asleep. Will this go away or do I need to try a new med? Should I tell the psychiatrist now or should I wait until the third?
Drowsiness/sedation is a relatively common Abilify side-effect. It may or may not go away, but for many it doesn't completely.

If you can get in to see your family doctor within the next day or two then maybe first have a blood test to rule out anemia and if that isn't the problem then definitely contact your psychiatrist. Meanwhile avoid doing anything potentially hazardous like driving.
