Thread: Aripiprazole

  1. #1

    Aripiprazole

    So i was given some new medication to cope with my hallucinations and reading a bit about it, it is also treated for mania. it is 5mg so it is not a big does also i was told that i have to come off Citaripram next week reducing gradually and going on Duloxetine 60mg to be taken immediately 1 time a day. Has any one taken Aripiprazole before and what was the effects?

    They look at me and think I'm cool, I'm purplefan at night I rule.

    I have taken abilify before,the side effect I think is restless leg syndrome and also it keeps you awake,it will be a problem if you take it before you sleep.Watch everyone varies on side effect when on same medication.

    I was on abilify purple. Restless legs were one of the side effects. Also you could become more sensitive to the sun. Good luck with it.

    I have been told it can put on weight. I am a bit worried about that. Has anyone experienced that?

    It is one that can cause weight gain the same as mirtazapine cos it can increase your appetite.

    I think it's about time that you were offered some more help with your hallucinations..
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    I just realised I probably put my comments about hallucination in the wrong thread, sorry Purple.
