Thread: Abilify

  1. #1
    Has anyone else been on Abilify? I was wondering if it was any good for bi polar and if it has any side effects.

    Hi karleey,
    I was on abilify for a very short period of time. It actually worked pretty well for me, but I have a condition called lupus (an autoimmune disorder) and the side effect made my lupus sores worse. I wish I could have stayed on it, but wasn't willing to sacrifice my skin for it. The other side effect I had from it was kind of a restless leg thing going on, but it wasn't a really big deal.
    Sorry I couldn't any more helpful.

    My second day on Abilify, made me really sick. I am not sure if it was because I didn't have anything to eat, or I was dehydrated from my lasix pill. Either way, I was sweating, and my felt nausiated all day.

    Today is my third day. Right now, it is morning, and I feel ok. I will let ya know tommorow if I feel any different.

    Hang in there Smiley. I had some of the same reactions when I started taking Nardil. Not sure why, but it made me soooooo tired.
    As the days went on, my system slowly got used to it. I that it 3 times a day now and no side effects at all. NONE!! I know it sounds easy for me to say 'hang in there', but I'm going to do it anyway. Hang in there, each day gets better !!!!!
