Asked by Loraine Desjardiws 3 months ago.
These are the side effects that have been repoted but you may not experience any. Some people would experience a couple and some would have more. Its different for different people so basically you won't really know until you try it. Aripiprazole side effects Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Stop using aripiprazole and call your doctor at once if you have any of these serious side effects: fever, stiff muscles, confusion, sweating, fast or uneven heartbeats; jerky muscle movements you cannot control; sudden numbness or weakness, headache, confusion, or problems with vision, speech, or balance; increased thirst or urination, loss of appetite, fruity breath odor, drowsiness, dry skin, nausea, and vomiting, seizure (convulsions); thoughts of hurting yourself; feeling like you might pass out; jaundice (yellowing of your skin or eyes); or urinating less than usual or not at all. Less serious side effects may include: choking or trouble swallowing; dizziness, drowsiness, or weakness; constipation, mild stomach upset; headache, anxiety; sleep problems (insomnia); or weight gain. This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Tell your doctor about any unusual or bothersome side effect. Answered by Kelsey Ruffino 3 months ago.

Asked by Arlie Fehringer 3 months ago.
aripiprazole is a partial dopamine agonist, which means that it can enhance dopamine function in the brain if it is low, but it will reduce dopamine activity if it is excessive. Enhancement of dopamine function is known improve mood, this is how psychostimulants work and some atypical antidepressants such as bupropion. Antipsychotic effect of aripiprazole is in the "moderate" range compared to other neuroleptic drugs, in other words it may not be sufficiently effective. Ask your doctor about other stronger neuroleptic drugs. Answered by Phylis Ocenasek 3 months ago.
Everyone's brain chemistry is different, so it makes sense that the med could affect you the way it has. Your psychiatrist might want to try something else to help rid you of the voices, but for now just be thankful that you aren't depressed! Answered by Hang Fulling 3 months ago.
What are the side effects of Aripiprazole (Abilify) ?
Asked by Samara Seiple 3 months ago.
Some of the most common side effects associated with aripiprazole are anxiety, blurred vision, constipation, cough, headache, insomnia, light-headedness, nausea, rash, restlessness, runny nose, sleepiness, tremors, vomiting, weakness, and weight gain. As with other anti-psychotics, long-term use of aripiprazole may lead to a potentially irreversible condition called tardive dyskinesia (involuntary movements of the jaw, lips, and tongue). A potentially fatal complex referred to as neuroleptic malignant syndrome has been reported with anti-psychotic drugs, including aripiprazole. Patients who develop this syndrome may have high fevers, muscle rigidity, altered mental status, irregular pulse or blood pressure, rapid heart rate, excessive sweating, and heart arrhythmias. Although there is no clear link between aripiprazole and diabetes, patients should be tested during treatment for elevated blood-sugars. Additionally, persons with risk factors for diabetes, including obesity or a family history of diabetes, should have their fasting levels of blood sugar tested before starting treatment and periodically throughout treatment to detect the onset of diabetes. Any patient developing symptoms that suggest diabetes during treatment should be tested for diabetes Answered by William Rothfeld 3 months ago.

Answered by Augustine Marmerchant 3 months ago.
Stick with the Aripiprazole change over. The side effects will settle down and as it does not cause the weight gain Olanzapine does, is much healthier for you. With weight gain comes diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure all risk factors for heart disease. Answered by Elbert Cerniglia 3 months ago.

I have recently been diagnosed with Bipolar after years in treatment for bulimia nervosa, major depressive disorder and borderline personality disorder. My psychiatrist feels it would be good to try a new medication especially as I have experienced 2 manic episodes in the last 6 months and my depression has become intolerable and is no longer being helped by my current medication. I'm currently taking 225mg venlafaxine. Initially I would stay on this whilst taking a new medication and then that would be reviewed- whether to stay on it, switch to something else or come off it. Has anyone had any experiences with lamotrigine or aripiprazole? My psychiatrist has said that one of them would be best for me but has given me the choice which depending on how I feel about their possible side effects. Any advice or experiences would be great! Answered by Janis Fangmann 3 months ago.
actually you can take both of them. Lamotrigine is a mood stabilizer and aripiprazole is an anti psychotic (Abilify). I have taken them together before. No sweat..... Lamotrigine messed with my memory a bit but I am still on it.... Abilify gave me horrible insomnioa and made me manic.... I am now on Klonopin, Lamotrigine, and Saphris.

Yes I have taken aripiprazole along with Quetiapene (Seroquel). It didnt work for me but everyone is different - it just didnt help my mood or anxiety. I am now on Duloxetine with the seroquel and it has made a great difference, but you just cant say what will work for other people. Hope it works for you! Answered by Luis Hollering 3 months ago.
