  • From this study (14 hours 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.

  • From this study (4 days ago):

  • Acne isn't severe in that it is vast, but what I do get is large spots that resemble whiteheads, but deep beneath the surface. They stick around for months without ever changing or coming to a head. Sometimes they itch.

    My idea of severe weight gain: 25lbs in 6 weeks.

    If they are painful and around the jaw/neck, they may be swollen lymph nodes.

    I have also noticed that I have been getting hard pimple like bumps on my face and neck. They never come to a head can be painful to touch and they get big like a boil but they don't go completely away they shrink down to where you can't notice the huge bump but when I rub my fingers over the area you can still feel a little bump under the skin almost like a cyst! What exactly are they and how can I stop getting them?
