Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (11 hours ago):

  • Within 3 to 4 months of starting ABILIFY, I gained about 40 pounds. As for the akathisia (feeling of restlessness or shaking on the inside), it wasn't bad until my dose got to 15mg. Eventually it went away and I still take 15mg/day. (haven't been able to lose much weight though. Side effects with EFFEXOR include severe sweating and a electric zap-like feeling in my head if I forget a dose or even miss it by a few hours.

  • From this study (1 day ago):

  • Stabbing pain began at about a level 6 only while I was on the drug Trihexphenidyl. It appeared when I introduced the 1/2 pill a day at the twice per day mark. The first 5 days of 1/2 a pill had no reaction. it was the beginning of the next 5 days that I immediately felt the pain but no other symptoms. I continued with the 1/2 pill in the morning and 1/2 pill in the evening for three days and with each 1/2 pill there after the intervals of stabbing pain increased in severity and frequency until a lever 8 and 9 pain threshold. I then stopped taking the medication. Three days later my abdomen is still very tender but no stabbing pain.

  • From this study (1 day ago):

  • I take 20 milligrams of Abilify with 20 mg. of celexa at night with Alprazolam throughout the day and at night to help me sleep. Since taking abilify over the past 10 years I have gained weight that I can't lose, I am always buying lottery tickets, and want to go to gamble obsessively. I also have compulsive behavior such as compulsive spending. I can leave my house with $100.00 to go get one thing and come back with no money and a bunch of stuff I didn't plan to get.
