I feel fine at rest. Once up and moving short time, dizziness and vision symptoms occur. Tremor occurs in neck...head going up and down...and in left arm more than right. Have had possible MS for a long time, now they think it is Ritalin causing the problem. stopped Ritalin and started Ativan. Same symptoms

Surely this kid wasn't on all those stimulants at once. If so, the kid's parents should sue the doctor for malpractice/stupidity/attempted murder.
Just wondering if there are any adverse interactions between any of the many medications my son has to take.
Can you answer these questions (what is this?):
- Is latudal addictive
I have. Been on abilify for 12 years. And suffering from Ptsd. Severe depression. I'm also on Paxil for anxiety. #40 mgs. Paxil doesn't work for me. I'm more depressed and sill anxious. Is latudal addicting andwould latudal be compatible with abilify?
- How many mg can cause a coma with this?
I have a cocktail of disorders. Bad news here...i've lived in a world of hell for over 9 years because of my conditions. I just want to get better.
- Did you stop abilify and stop having aspirations
I was wondering how many of the patients who experienced aspiration pneumonia stopped taking Abilify. Once off Abilify did the aspirations stop?
