- 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):
my son (12 years old) has been taking Abilify for about a year. I started noticing him drinking and urinating more. We decided to check his Blood Sugar one night and it was 561! We took him to the ER. He will be insulin dependent the rest of his life. 2 weeks after he was diagnosed, I decided to stop the Abilify. Within 3 days his blood sugar checks were at least 50% less. We had not changed the insulin dose except to make it less, since he was improving. I believe that Abilify caused my son's diabetes. I never knew how life altering this disease is. PLEASE be careful.
Julie on Oct, 31, 2012:
