    Abilify for Mania; Sleep disorders; Bipolar disorder

    I am 22 years old and was treated with Olanzapine (Zyprexa) due to psychosis (plus panic attacks and sleep disturbances), which made me hardly sleep for 14 hours and more after just 3 weeks. At the moment, Zyprexa’s blessing was bad. I thought I would never be able to be normal again and continue to push very tiring panic attacks every day. Then, as part of a psychotherapy, Bipolar Disorder was detected and I was put on Abilify and Sertraline (SSRI). After about 5 months, the sertraline was spilled out and since then I’m only taking Abilify. At manic times up to 15mg and at the moment only 5mg. At first I had extreme twitches from Abilify which bothered me as well as my boyfriend. The convulsions did not go away but you learn to live with them and they are less exhausting than living through a mania. By and large, I’m happy with my life, no panic attacks for 2 years and no depressive or manic phase since I started psychotherapy. Abilify helps me curb my thoughts, which usually go through my head like an extremely loud train. Less focused thoughts.

    Side effects: Listlessness; Fatigue

    Abilify for Bipolar disorder

    The dosage must be exact. For me it is 2/3 of 15 mg ABILIFY in the morning. In the evening, add 1/2 25 mg of Seroquel. Sitting still is hard for me since then. But in comparison with lithium, my libido is OK again.

    Side effects: Drive increase

    I should also let Seroquel sneak out and bring in Abilify for my manic phase. After 3 days, however, I got tremendous tremors in my legs, so my doctor called it Parkinsonoid. I took it a few more days. But it got worse and worse. Right up to the grinding process. Would not recommend it to anyone

    Side effects: Restless legs

    Abilify for Bipolar disorder

    Hi – I take Abilify for 2 years – I have involuntary twitching in my right hand for some time now. So the normal tremor that you get as a side effect. So far, the twitching occurs only in my right hand. Otherwise, I am very well adjusted to the drug and have since had no mania. In the beginning I had a very strong seat discomfort in the legs (akathisia). Overall, I can only recommend the drug. At the moment I am still very depressed – but I do not know if that is also the result of the drug – therefore it blocks the dopamine the connection would be so close … I’m not a doctor, however …

    Side effects: Trembling of the hands

    Abilify for Bipolar disorder

    I have been taking the drug for about 6 weeks now because of my bipolar disorder. Initially (the first two weeks of inpatient treatment, at that time I got 15mg), severe sedation, fatigue, tingling and trembling in the fingers, the feeling that there is no strength in the body. The intake took place in the morning around 8 o’clock and the side effects occurred mostly between 9 and 15 o’clock. In the afternoon it got better. Meanwhile, I take 10 mg, the tingling is completely gone, now and then slightly shaky hands. Tiredness persists about 1 hour after ingestion and then stops for 2-3 hours. All in all, I have the feeling that I can not really wake up … but that is probably true. The mood is better. No feeling of depression anymore. Isolated lows due to external influences, but at least no groundless depression.

    Abilify for Sleep disorders; Bipolar disorder; Depression

    My mood is more balanced overall with the Abilify and the other medications in combination. I only cry very little and stay calm in all situations. The quality of my sleep at night is also improved. In conclusion; it helps and stabilizes me enough to finally be able to shape my normal everyday life. However, there are side effects that are unfortunately not always so pleasant for me.
