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?

    I see a woman in the nightWith a baby in her hand Under an old street light Near a garbage can. Now she puts the kid away,
    and she's gone to get a hit She hates her life,
    and what she's done to it. There's one more kid that will never go to school Never get to fall in love,
    never get to be cool.

    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..

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