... stomach almost like anxiety but cant pinpoint exactly but feeling a little strange when awaking. on trileptal 1800 mg abilify 20mg and remeron 15mg for bipolar d/o anyone else on this much abilify?
It made me very nervous and I was only on 5 mg. The insomnia was tough. I had to go off of it 3 months ago. It had me waking up with what felt like my gut was tied up in knots. I know we all act different to meds, but it just wasn't for me
I only took it once and had such extreme restlessness that I did not take it again (they call it akathisia-unpleasant sensations of inner restlessness that manifests itself with an inability to sit still or remain motionless). The restlessness was insane and lasted for days. I felt weird all over. Not sure what this med is supposed to feel like but I couldn't handle that. The restlessness was so bad I really don't know what other side effects I had although I do remember having an upset stomach for quite a few days afterward but not sure if the Abilify caused it or another med I had taken.
I personally am very allergic to Abilify. I have hypertension already and it shot that extra high along with tachycardia, extreme dizziness with a headache and just a very ill feeling in general. My internist said good thing I didn't take the whole 5 mg. pill... that I probably would have had a stroke. I had taken it for 4 days only at 1/8 of a pill... so my total was a half of a 5 mg. pill in 4 days. That's a strong little pill, but I am usually pretty sensitive to most meds. and a little bit goes a long way with me. Be careful, please. You can tell if a med. agrees with you more than anybody, so you need to trust your own judgement and call your doctor and stress to him/her that something just doesn't feel right. Hope you feel better soon!
Also, does anyone know how long once you take the pill you would start feeling its effects... 1 hour?
I HAVE!!! I wondered if anyone else felt this way? I hate it! My body feels so weird but cannot exactly Pinpoint the problem either. I'm seeing my Dr tomorrow about it. I feel the anxiety but I don't want to pick up my phone, clean house or anything. Even tho my mind wants to, when I start to, I just want to lay down because it's the only comfortable position. I squirm when sitting, and don't want to drive because I feel like I'll never get to the next place. Like it won't come fast enough. But I know enxiety & panic. This is way different!!! Not tired. Like my arms are heavy. Idk??? It weird! Thanks for posing!
