- 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.

Reoccurring calcium oxulate stones on regular basis
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I'm 19 and have been getting large kidney stones for the past few months now. I am curious as to see if the reason why I have been getting them, along with diverticulitis, is because of the types of birth control I have been taking. I took a depo-provera shot every 3 months for about 4 years, and started Sprintec about half a year ago. Are there any connections? I was thinking because the depo reduced calcium in my body, and that taking Sprintec caused a rush of calcium, that might be a reason.
