    Abilify for Mania

    In acute therapy, I suffered from sudden, previously unreleased internal visions and circulatory problems (black in the face, dizziness). I had felt a strong urge to move (restlessness). These side effects have given. In the continuous use (so far 2 months) it came to sleep disturbances: I get little into the deep sleep. The consciousness is extremely extended. The senses are awake, the senses have disappeared. My temperament remained sanguine (self-assured) to hypomanic; it was not humiliated or depressed, but the acute mania and latent megalomania were eradicated. I have energy and a very good drive. I sleep (7 hours) and eat less (but because of the therapy regularly), which I consider positive. But (subconscious) personal problems and fears make it harder for me to work than before and can not be worked up through sleep. The sense of reality has improved, the sound of the (own) inner voice (s) has disappeared. Now and then suicidal thoughts or thoughts of self-abandonment arise because of the problems of treatment because my ego is now easier to offend. The drug is weaker antipsychotic (the auditory perception of phonemes and the pathological empathy and telepathy has disappeared, but I now have visions), but more pleasant mood-enhancing and stabilizing at a higher level than other neuroleptics, which I know. However, I feel a strange twisting in my stomach when I have not eaten, which gives a neutral-uplifted feeling. I gain interest in sexual objects (women, adolescent men) and sexual practices (hand masturbation) that did not interest me before. The interaction with the sedating neuroleptic drug pipamperone is weak, as dipiperone (tradename) may provide its cushioning effect, however, even five times the dose, despite the combination with alcohol, can not induce sleep, which should, however, normally do, especially if one has not drunk alcohol for weeks. Aripiprazole appears to reverse the sedative (but not soothing) effects of alcohol. I feel a great urge to drink coffee. Abilify is less potent than Zyprexa (olanzipine) but more optimistic than Risperdal (risperidone) and does not show any extra-pyramidal disorders such as haloperidol.

    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
