Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 months ago):
My son wets himself at least once during the day and one at night. He states he can't feel the urge to go.
From this study (6 months ago):
I have severe thought blocking and my speech is halted - almost like a stutter. I would like to know if it's due to the medicine. Also I would like to know if my UI has to do with the meds. I also have frequent bowl movements and sometimes I'm not able to make it to the bathroom in time.
From this study (3 years ago):
stan on Mar, 3, 2011:
Our 9 year old son started Abilify recently -- for anxiety. A year ago and earlier he had problem staying dry, but, prior to Abilify, had been dry for months during the day -- although still wetting a night. Since going on a relatively low dose of Abilify (2 mg/day), he has reverted back to being wet nearly every day, and evening urination has increased.
