    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 Psychosis

    Fatigue, Sleep Disorders, Bad Dreams Despite Abilify, I had a relapse with hospital stay 11 months after the first episode. Abilify was then replaced by the doctor with new drug (Risperdal and Ergenyl chrono).

    Abilify for Psychosis

    Hello! Take Abilify in low dosage (2.5mg) for about 4 weeks in the evening! At the beginning of the intake strong restlessness and anxiety in the evening sleep disturbances. Now after 3-4 weeks stiff neck, restlessness, pulling in the joints, mild heart pain with radiation in the left arm, massive breathing problems (difficult to breathe) slight cramps in the throat, tingling and pulling in the legs. But it also works very well against the psychosis and after I took Zyprexa for years and was constantly dizzy and gaining weight, I want to stay with Abilify for the time being. Have in these 4 weeks of taking also lost about 10 kg of weight which is also positive. In severe convulsions I take 1/2 Akineton (1mg) in the evening I take a light antidepressant Trittico 75mg. Sleep is back. I hope that the side effects improve and the antidepressant begins to work (take it for about 3-4 days)!

    Abilify for Delusion; Psychosis

    For half a year, I take Abilify 10 mg daily. Have decreased since the 13 KG. In the beginning, I had trouble sleeping, was not very hungry, Now after six months, the side effects have diminished. I can only recommend Abilifly because I tried many medications that did not work properly or that caused severe side effects (such as fatigue, heavy weight gain, constant appetite)

    Side effects: Weight loss; Sleep disorders

    Abilify for Psychosis

    Severe extrapyramidal motor disorders (EMS, tasikinesia and onset akathisia), tremor, sleep disturbances, anxiety, dizziness attacks (also lying in bed), photosensitivity, weight gain, inner restlessness, severe visual impairment, very limited visual perception (walking on the street was self-endangerment) Total loss of spatial capacity, loss of sense of time, as a result of all its inability to work, Abulian-akinetic syndrome (especially in the case of subsequent drug withdrawal). I was given Zyprexa years ago, which resulted in heavy EMS. Despite knowing this circumstance, Abilify was given to me. A specialist told me that once you have reacted with EMS, you also react to the other medications from the group like that. It was already experimented on me with 6 substances, all led (in some cases after a few days) to clear EMS. On a website of a German doctor I found the hint that a reduction of the dose does not change / reduce the EMS. From experience, I know that’s true. I had to take the drug for 10 weeks on doctor’s orders. It was then deposed without substitution from one day to the next. This resulted in a heavy drug withdrawal that lasted over 12 weeks. All the side effects I knew from the start of intake were repeated in reverse order.

    Abilify for Sleep disorders; Psychosis

    I take Abilify since it came to Germany in the market since 2004. I have all neuroleptics through and suffered by strong overweight of Leponex and Zyprexa a heart attack at 24 years. Suffer from muscle atrophy from neuroleptics. This means my heart muscle value ck mb and ck are increased by 30- 50 times when I take another neuroleptics. I had to spend 1 year every day in the psychiatric blood checks to find out which neuroleptics makes any of these muscle increases. The only one was Abilify. The rest could have devastating consequences. I need someone with a lot of experience because I’m at a loss. With Abilify I had strong restlessness, fears, sleep disturbances. Yes, even the sexual behavior became stronger, which actually makes me happy because all other neuroleptics made me impotent. Insofar I am glad that I may have sex again. Nevertheless, Abilify is not the solution. I could not stand the side effect, so I took benzos, that is diazepam. The fears disappeared, the restlessness and I could sleep. Meanwhile, I take 20 mg diazepam a day and it does not work properly anymore. I know that it makes you dependent, but I have not endured the conditions of Abilify. By taking Diazepam for years I feel like I’m in the head. Totally shielded and slowly I feel like dumb. I can not think correctly anymore, but that also happened with abilify. I can not take any other medication due to my heart attack and my muscle increases. It’s like a vicious circle, I can not get out of it. I am now psychosis free for 5 years and do not want to go back to the clinic just to test what suits me. I am already experienced. I would prefer to withdraw the diazepam and completely depose neuroleptics, and then just live again. There is still a difficult road ahead of me. I can tell anyone to take Benzos only on time that means as long as necessary, which does not make it dependent. And if you do not agree abilify others try to stay stable.

    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 Sleep disorders; Psychosis

    Since the increase of 10mg Abilify I have a constant seat uneasiness. I can not sit for longer than 5-10 minutes let alone focus on something … Very disturbing are the sleep disorders that keep me awake for days and can only be corrected with sleeping pills … in 3 weeks I have about 6 kilos increased! Otherwise, the drug helps me very well against the hallucinations and Tavor at the fear and panic.

    Abilify for Psychosis

    Initially, I complained of nausea and dizziness, I was extremely tired for about 3 days. Then it was suddenly as if someone had removed a parking claw. After a long time with strong drive disturbances, I am now full of energy and able to do the daily tasks. In the meantime, however, perceptual disturbances occur again and again. There is strong inner restlessness. At the beginning of the treatment I was able to B. not sleep well. I woke up at night 4-5 times and woke up around 4.30 am every morning. Sleep was out of the question. But with some exceptions, that has improved. After taking Risperdal (duration of intake 1 year) increased about 15 kg, I could now reduce again after the drug conversion with Abilify and Sport 5 kg. Have no more hunger attacks. It creates a feeling of satiety relatively quickly.
