    Abilify for Concentration disorders; Depression

    I took 15 mg Abilify / day for 7 weeks. I could not stand it. At first I just got tired while jogging, 3 weeks later I could not swim any more, 1 week later it was already exhausting stairs. I felt depressed, the increase in citalopram dose from 30 mg to 40 mg did not help. (Citalopram is an SSRI antidepressant) I have suffered from loss of interest and no matter what I did, I did not enjoy it. Abilify® has caused me complete anhedonia, which has led to complete lack of motivation. It did not make me tired, but otherwise it was debilitating in every way. Within 3 weeks of weaning, I regained strength and stamina, and study content and hobbies have returned to my interest, and the depressed mood has gone away. I am sure that the condition described above was caused by Abilify®, the symptoms came with the Abilify® and left after weaning. Whether Abilify helped me with concentration, I can not say. I did not get any concentration problems after weaning until today (14 months later). As can be seen from the above report, Abilify has no antidepressant effect on me, on the contrary. Ciao Anna

    Abilify for Concentration disorders; Depression

    Antipsychotics (first Seroquel, later Abilify) were the most horrible drug experience of my life. Horrible … Under Seroquel I had NO ideas anymore. I felt like my brain and mind were in chains, I felt inhibited and thinking slowed down, it was awful. The term chemical straitjacket fits it very well. And Abilify has caused me a terrible joylessness (also called anhedonia). No matter what I did, I absolutely did not enjoy it. In my worst depressive times it was not so bad. I swore never to touch NL again. I find it terrifying how a drug can take away so much creativity and individuality, vitality and initiative and that without making you tired. I was not tired of it. but otherwise the antipsychotics were paralyzing in every way. ————————————————– ———————– Seroquel for the treatment of concentration problems Because it can help against concentration problems, I have taken 600 mg of Seroquel Prolong for 7 weeks. I had NO ideas and under this condition I suffered a lot. Fatigue disappeared in 10 days, lack of ideas did not disappear. The withdrawal was a liberation. Klaus Windgassen in the Deutsches Ärzteblatt, issue 48/2004: “Under classical neuroleptics, on the contrary, psychological changes can occur which are often barely distinguishable from this [negative symptoms] and are therefore also called secondary negative symptoms. Patients may suffer from neuroleptic-induced affective depletion, more often there is still a decline in coagulative processes or a loss of spontaneity and trauma. Although these accompanying effects of neuroleptic therapy are completely reversible (as well as, as a rule, the physical side effects), they can considerably burden the patient. I do not know if Seroquel belongs to the classic neuroleptics. In any case, the LETTERING describes exactly how Seroquel worked for me. Whether Seroquel helped me with the concentration, I can not say. I did not get any concentration problems after weaning until today (4 years later). I found out what was causing my concentration problems. Namely that too many worries have gone along. To make worries aware — & gt; Concern consciously pushing aside because I want to do this activity now — & gt; I can concentrate properly. The Seroquel was just awful, I had NO ideas anymore. How many incidents you have constantly, you only notice when that’s gone. Quite apart from the fact that I want to work in the thesis in a working group that develops new devices for analytics in chemistry, I have to bring in my own ideas. At the time, I also wrote a choir set for two gospel songs, for my church choir. This was no longer possible under Seroquel, I had no more melodies in my head. A horrible condition, something like that. No more Seroquel I could not laugh anymore under the influence of Seroquel. The round was laughing and I knew that normally I would laugh, but it did not work. It’s not under the influence of Seroquel. I suffered from joylessness because of Seroquel. Music gave me nothing more, sex has given me nothing more. It was generally difficult or impossible to develop positive feelings under the influence of Seroquel. More difficult than in depressive phases, which I have by nature, it is still better and more often than under the influence of Seroquel. I also suffer in depressive phases with joylessness, but not without gaps. There are always bright spots where I can look forward perfectly. The joyless that causes me Seroquel, is complete and therefore worse. I suffer more from the condition that Seroquel causes me than from the depressive phases. Because of the joylessness I got 30 mg Citalopram prescribed. But that did not help. Only settling Seroquel has benefited. ————————————————– ———————– Because of my complaints about Seroquel the clinician changed me to Abilify. I tolerated it even worse. One week seroquel washout, then 10 days without antipsychotics, then over 9 days creeping on Abilify 10 mg. The citalopram I have continued all the time. Here is the review of Abilify: ——————————————– —————————– Abilify for the treatment of depression and concentration problems I have
