I recently was put on lyrica & had horrible side effects within 10 days, I suffer from severe depression. This med made me feel exhausted, dizzy, sleepy, I honestly felt like I was in a fog all of the time-while I was on it. My dr took me off of lyrica & put me on Sulindac. Jeez, within 5 days I was so depressed that all I wanted to do was cry, I felt like my life was nothing but doom & gloon, I called the prescribing dr & he told me to take 1/2 a pill twice a day instead of 1 whole pill twice a day. I did as I was instructed & it was pretty much the same. I talked to my pharmacist about this after being on this med for 4 wks. my pharmacist advised me to ween myself off of this med starting right then. So I slowly went off of it. I'm much better emotionally now. My psychiatrist is so mad at my pain dr he can't even see straight. we finally got the right combination of psych drugs that work for me & my pain dr goes out on his own & prescribes me meds that apparently don't agree with me. Your professional opinion?

I am having a migraine with aura, after going for 4 months without one, the seroquel has helped. i am trying to drink less coffee, and am hoping it will go away, this one with aura has lasted for 5 days. I have some stress, but seem to be fighting the pain. The seroquel has relieved the mania I was experiencing months ago. Migraines are making it difficult to focus consistently throughout the day. I noticed the migraine came back when it became cold outside and I did not want to walk my hour since the winds were pretty cold. I am aware that windy conditions and the going out of them will exacerbate both bipolar mania and migraine symptoms. Please help as this one is lasting way too long. I always take Tylenol when symptoms are not really severe, but think I might be rebounding. My thoughts do not race as in mania but are not consistently the way they need to be to keep my mind off of the migraine and whether its going to go away or not. I have felt great and free from migraine aura, since beginning the seroquel approx 4 months ago. Thank you for any suggestions and for having a web-site where I can find input until I go to the MD and Psych on Dec 5. Regards, Diane and I drink lots of water to help the migraines too.

I developed torticollis soon after starting abilify. At the same time, I developed pain in my left side. An MRI revealed 4 ruptured disks in my spine, a known cause of torticollis.
Conclusion: I have no idea (neither, it seems, do the doctors). But I found abilify very effective for its purpose.
