  • I take abilify and i have hemerroids
    I take Abilify and all the side effects so fare are posted above
  • Bpd and insomnia with abilify and cymbalta
    I am currently in recovery from BPD, but still have some traits. I also suffer from depression. I suffer with insomnia also. I have noticed that if I forget to take my meds, I have a higher chance of not sleeping that night.
  • Lo loestrin and breast plate pain
    This has to be the worst birth control I have ever taken. I felt like two different people. I turned into a lunatic when I was in my cycle - which I never knew when I was on my cycle because I bled for two days here, four days there, 5 days another time. I never knew when I was going to bleed. My face had cysts and I was breaking out like I was going through puberty-I'm 33! I was having pain in my breast bone where the cartilage meets the sternum. I am talking about serious pain! It felt like I had slept on my side for hours with a boulder on me. I would never recommend this birth control to anyone. If you are taking it and feeling these symptoms, talk to your doctor about switching birth control immediately!
  • Abilify causing incontinence
    Abilify is making me have Little to no bladder control. Is better once I stopped taking but has not gone away 2 weeks later.
  • Hiccups with abilify (3 responses)
    Started Abilify on 11/1/2013. In the early afternoon of 11/2, I started hiccuping about every five seconds. Attempted to stop them using various methods: drinking water slowly, holding breath, plugging ears and nose while drinking water, etc. The last method was effective for about an hour before the hiccups started again.



    The problem persisted throughout 11/3 and disrupted sleep. I stopped taking the Abilify on 11/4 and I have not had another bout of hiccups. I contacted my psychiatrist and he said he was unaware of this side effect. I have printed the study and will bring it in to the next appointment. He suggested I stop for a couple of days and then restart the Abilify to see whether the problem disappears or dissipates.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I'm moody and irritable and have feelings of being lonely, although I have lots of friends/family. I don't really see much change, if any in the 6 months I've been on meds.the resperidone was just added 8 days ago and 2 nights ago I thought I heard someone talking to me. My parents think I was just half asleep since it was 5am, but wanted to make sure it wasn't an adverse reaction to the meds.
