  • 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.
  • 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.

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • I have to take a weekly urine test. The results keep coming back diluted. They are telling me it is because of my diet. They usually test me around 9:00 in the a.m. an I don't eat breakfast. I usually have cups of coffee then a soda on my way to my test. I purposely cut back my coffee/soda intake before I went to the urine test but it still came back diluted. Can the abilify cause that? I am not trying to hide anything. Please let me know. Thank you.

  • I've been taking Abilify for about 2 years but I've been messing up on it I keep starting and stopping the medication which I know I shouldn't do that. And I just started my period 2 weeks late no cramping just a little ache in my back. But I'm having a lot of clots and just bleeding when I go pee and theirs hardly anything on my pad. Oh and also have been under a lot of stress lately and constantly worring about everything. Could this have anything to do with my abnormal menstrual cycle.
