    Abilify for Psychosis

    Abilify 10 mg – A field report Side effects: Libido loss, insomnia, impotence, decreased sexual desire for love Dear Sanego Community, For some weeks I receive as an antipsychotic 10 mg Abilify. Hereby I would like to describe my experiences to you. I. Explanation of Abilify Mechanism of Action The special feature of aripiprazole is the so-called partial D2 receptor antagonism. This means that the blockade of dopamine receptors is very selective in the mesolimbic system where too much of this messenger is present after the dopamine hypothesis. On the other hand, in the mesofrontal system, where schizophrenia has too little of this messenger, the neuroleptic leads to activation, thus mimicking endogenous dopamine. II. Antipsychotic efficacy In a study conducted by the manufacturer before approval in Germany, the effect on the positive symptoms was comparable to that of haloperidol. The antipsychotic efficacy is comparable to the other atypical antipsychotics quetiapine, risperdione, ziprasidone, paliperidone, amisulpride, clozapine, and olanzapine. On the negative symptoms and cognitive functions Abilify, however, significantly better than haloperidol. The cognitive functions impaired in schizophrenia are also positively influenced by the activation of the mesofrontal system in the brain. III. Impact on the Prolusion Levels Prolusion levels remain constant or even lower under Abilify. It leads to no prolactin increase such. As the classic neuroleptics or atypical neuroleptics amisulpride and risperidone. IV. No EPS (Extrapyramidal Motor Disorders) While even the neuroleptic Risperdal has led to muscle stiffness for me and thus I could exercise in the spare time almost no sports, this is not the case under Abilify. The limbs remain flexible, there is no muscle stiffness and no Parkinsonsyndrom. V. Weight-neutral The antipsychotics clozapine and olanzapine can lead to extreme weight gain after initiation of therapy. Weight gains of 20 kg and more are not uncommon, especially among Zyprexa. Aripiprazole, on the other hand, is absolutely weight-neutral, it does not gain weight at all. VI. No blood cell changes While Leponex can lead to life-threatening blood cell changes, these parameters are not changed under Abilify. VII. Effects on sexual function Here Abilify seems to have advantages over other antipsychotics. My own experience, I can not contribute because of the short-term intake, however, the American website is claimed that the incidence of sex dysfunction is not different from those of placebo. VIII. Effects on sleep Due to the strong drive-enhancing effect, I have had to struggle with severe sleep disturbances until weaning. According to the specialist information, 17% of all patients, and thus very often, sleep disorders. Conclusion: Due to the high price of 8 euros per piece for the 10 mg tablet, as well as the massive sleep disturbances that triggers this antipsychotic, I can not recommend the use of Abilfiy which is advertised by the manufacturer as the first neuroleptic of the third generation.

    Side effects: Impotence; Libido loss; Insomnia
