Hi everyone, just a quick question.

This morning I saw my new psychiatrist- rather dishy he is but by the by he perscribed me Abliify- which is the trade name of Aripiprazole.

I was adviced to take it once a day in the morning, so I did what was required, but about two hours later I was violently ill and had to cancel my voluntary work.

Has anyone else been prescribed this medication for mood swings?

I took this as an antipsychotic last year I was on it for about 3 months but i shook so violently i came off it. I couldnt use my laptop for shaking and found it difficult to feed myself. Even after i stopped taking them it still took 2-3 months before the shaking stopped


What was it that made u so ill.

I'm just guessing that its a side effect? Never took these before. Feel slightly like i have a hangover.

Weird right?

Hi dib, i felt as though someone was inside my body pulling at my muscles and making them twitch. It was a really awful sensation. Its now been added to my ever growing list of cant take pills:)

Hey Daffy hon, sadly for every one drug that works for you, theres another one that dont work for whatever the reason. My body is begning to tolerate Abilify- I have my breakfast first and then take the tablet.

Hey Daffy, sorry it took a while to get back to you.

The sickness for me is nearly gone after a week, I eat something and inbetween eating breakfast I take the pill... Yet another symptom/side effect is that i over heat- and it looks like i'm having a hot flush!

Sleeping wise, meh, I go to bed late and wake up early.

:)
