    Has anyone on Abilify had pulmonary emboli? I had massive, multiple (and a saddle embolus) emboli while on Abilify and the medical team could find no other cause - i.e. no DVT, no cancer, no genetic clotting deficiency. Any similar situations?

    tremor, and sleeping disorder, depression, my doctor still wanted me to eat them as she claimed I was schizofrenic.
    Although I stopped eating them for more than 8 months ago, I have not experienced a new psycosis, and with this facit, I was not scizofrenic, I am happy without tablets,
    the dr ordinated me litium because of the deppression and claimed I was bipolar, I stopped with litium and i am happy and calm, not suffering from psycosis nor depression. The psycosis I think I got because I did not sleep much for some years and was very active!

    My question is that I have an 8 yr old daughter who has been on abilify for less than a year. She had recent blood work done and her triglycerides were 142. She is extremely active, great shape, into soccer. The PCP didn't seem to concern and couldn't tell me whether the medication was the cause. dr that prescribed it thought it was very high. Does anyone have any answers on this or comments.

    I have been taking Abilify since 2007 and my triglycerides are very high even though I don't eat lots of sweets or fatty foods. Unfortunately it becomes very hard to control without other medicines which I do not want to take.

    To this mom, I'm 53 years old and am a health nut really..I exercise, eat better than anyone I know..I rarely indulge in anything that would cause high cholesterol. I am bipolar 1..abilify is the drug used to stabilize my condition and I would never go off the medication. However it is causing my cholesterol to be high and remain there as well I'm experiencing sever tooth dessocay and periodontal disease. Both I believe caused by abilify. However this drug is very important to my health so that's where the acceptance comes in.good luck to you and your daughter
