    Abilify for Hallucinations

    I took Abilify / Arpoya for a few weeks. Only 5mg and slowly increased up to 15mg. In parallel, Amisulprid of 125mg down. Until 10mg Abilify I felt like a bad drug addiction but after 1 week 10mg intake disappeared. Then I felt pretty clear, but since I was very tired and tired, I always took these in the evening. Slight sleep disorders occurred but were still ok. Slight sweats. With the 15mg intake, I was not so good, despite holding out several days, it did not get better. The sweat dripped so only after a little effort so from the face there were extreme riots and despite taking in the morning I just can not sleep. The senses and nerves were extremely awake and sitting as well as lying at night was almost impossible. As uncomfortable as it almost hurt. The head simply did not go down tiredly from the illuminated waking. The muscles were like rubber in the legs, powerless and limp and I was totally joyless. Felt like a robot. Despite down dosing on 10mg then on 5mg the side effects did not end. The extreme so-called seat discomfort has now become much less at 2.5mg, the subdued joyless feeling is gone, and light sweats have become very rare. The symptoms of hearing the voices did not go away even at 15mg, so I had to top up the Amisulprid all the time. In my opinion, the Amisulprid for hearing voices is still the best remedy, but I have gained 20kg in a short time so I wanted to prove Abilify. Since the side effects of Abilify for me were too unbearable and the symptoms of hallucinations were not resolved, I can not recommend it in this regard. Now at 2.5mg (dissolved in the water, because not divisible) I finally feel well again have strength in my legs and feel again joy in life and the drive is back again. Will it in the next 3 days kpl. let slip out. Have within 2 weeks then creep from 15mg to 0mg and get no Absetzsymptome or the like. Now I also have ADHD and get Ritalin, which might be the reason why it did not bring the desired effect for me. It was worth a try, but climb back to Amisulprid which helps me in low dosage at 125mg very well against the stimulation! I hope I could help with my experience.

    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

    Good day, I suffer from a strong school fear, I can hardly (now) to school. I’m shaking, afraid I’m afraid of embarrassing school, I’m suffering from a Disperse Syndrome, Almost Autistic. Then a few weeks ago I started to go to a great day clinic. There I was given a medication called Abilify. I’m 12 years old, and this drug has not helped at all. The first day I was terribly tired, even though I got so low a dose that there is not, yet I was tired, bad mood, very aggressive, was even more afraid, the drug has caused me a real panic. In the end everything was shitty. Then the dose was raised, the side effects were less severe, but I felt no change, the fear of going to school was still there. In the day clinic inside, I was very Unconcentrated, Constantly numbers, sentences, letters, all sorts of confused, as well as In mathematics, that was terrible. I have constantly confused Addition with something else. Still, the drug does not help with school anxiety. Although the dose was now a whole tablet. To all children who want to take Abilify! Just do not do it. The drug brings only disadvantages. (a very important side effect is the sausage, that is to say roughly, one has no more fun in the life, one everything is missing, luckily it came with me garnichsoweit.)

    Abilify for Drive disorders; Sleep disorders

    Seroquel at the beginning of very strong fatigue and drowsiness, but after proper dosing that took a bit of time and dropped, we went so halfway well. Unfortunately, the fatigue can not disappear even after years, you have to divide the day well, the only one, strong overweight, have up to 25 kil. increased, for a year I take because of the improvement no more seroquel and the weight is since then again without diet wegababer but to get the dissociative disorder and the post-traumatic stress in grasp it was umungängich and brought successful recovery. depakine redard, no side effects, very well tolerated, I still have, keeps my mood quite well in the balance, kickiko has triggered more nightmares with me, but took them anyway due to the sleeplessness resolved, but today I switched to dominal forte, As the dreams became more, Abilify caused me great restlessness, sometimes I could not sit still or stand still, even in bed my feet slipped, was extremely unpleasant

    Abilify for Borderline

    Abilify was prescribed to me in the clinic for intolerance to lamotrigine. The treatment is due to a borderline disorder. In six weeks occurred side effects, spotting, now failing the period (prevention occurs punctually and completely), slight tongue swelling / tongue paralysis, fatigue and mild nausea, forgetfulness. I’m better with the drug, in particular, I’m glad to have no more panic attacks because of my fear of loss and due to the subdued cranial nerve activity to be able to think carefully.

    Side effects: Amenorrhea; Nausea; Fatigue

    Abilify for Obsessive compulsive disorder

    I only took the medication 5 days because of my obsessive-compulsive disorder and unfortunately I’m not at all happy with it. My blood pressure – which has been the most beautiful for many years, shot up. I also have dizziness, I’m totally tired and have racing heart. I also have gastrointestinal problems, although I can not assign 100% of them to Abilify.

    Abilify for Depression; Psychosis

    I take 10 mg Abilify for 3 days and feel like I’m totally on drugs. Side effects: headache, dizziness, extreme tiredness, nausea, sometimes can not speak properly, my writing is totally scrawny, I feel very weak. Dream hard and much. I feel like I’m on a bad drug trip. Now I have halved the dose (to 5mg) and it works a little better. I will observe this with my doctor and then decide if we will switch back to my old medication (Amisulprid). The only advantage: I have already lost 2.5 pounds.

    Abilify for Depression

    In the course of my depression and my anxiety disorders, I also got strong mood swings. I was u.a. aggressive. In contrast, the drug helped me immediately. The effect was rapid and effective. The side effects were catastrophic at least in the first days: collapse; I could not even walk about an hour after taking it; Nausea; Break; I almost slept through the first three days after my first ascent, but I was awake for one to two hours in between; restless legs set in; All side effects, except for the restless legs, went away after about two weeks. However, I remained fidgety, so I could not sit still. Reading or working was very difficult or sometimes impossible.

    Side effects: Restless legs; Vomit; Sweats; Fatigue

    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 Psychosis

    Strong sedation within the first days. Later short-term uneasiness. Good activity after the adjustment phase. But after 3 years of taking it is hardly available. Reoccurrence of psychotic symptoms. After a dose increase, fatigue persists and overwhelming food cravings. Weight gain of 8 kg. Initially, this medication was a blessing to me. Now I just feel it as a burden. Abilify lowered from 30 to 7.5 mg.

    Abilify for Depression; Psychosis

    I was hired in the clinic on Zyprexa because I got a psychosis and could not eat anything anymore and became aggressive, the drug worked too, I just had vertigo and was very tired and in 2 years from 36 size to 48 rocketed. The appetite increased and my eating habits changed even though I did some exercise, but I was able to work again and that was more important to me than the weight. But there was another depression because I had absolutely no body feeling at all. Since I have changed the medication with my doctor, I tried Abilify, but I have been totally nervous and I have got speech disorders, then I tried zelldox, 80mg in the morning and 80mg in the evening (high dose) the first week I was totally bad, I could not eat anything, but after a week, it got worse and fluoxetine for the depression got 20mg in the morning. I felt great, felt my body again and realized I could enjoy the food again. Only when I took Zelldox in the morning did I get really tired after two hours and had to lie back in bed and sleep first. Now I take 20mg fluoxetine in the morning and 80mg zelldox in the evening, within a year I am from dress size 48 to 40 (also sport), only I notice the protection is not as high as at Zyprexa, at Zyprexa I was feeling-poorer but also more stress-resistant. Now I take feelings more which can be very stressful. Now also do a behavioral therapy, so that I can deal better with everyday situations. (I can only recommend to anyone), the application takes a while and until you find the right therapist, but it’s worth it, because many drugs just kill the symptoms.

    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.
