Hi I’m taking Abilify for Bipolar II and I took my first pill last night and then all day today I’ve been nauseous and burping up sort of rotten eggs. Then just a few minutes ago I threw up. Sorry if it’s TMI but I was just wondering if this is normal for side effects to happen this fast or if I’ve got something else going on. Thanks.
Hi, Hannah! Yes, about 0.01% to 10+% of users will experience some forms of GI upset and nausea, vomiting, burping, abdominal pain, etc. are very common.
The good news is that these side effects generally only last a few days to a week or two... and they get better every day.
Best regards, Wildcat
Was hoping there would be more answers to this great question. I’ve taken so many different meds I can’t remember which one made me throw up within an hour of taking it. Just started back on it tonight – hoping I won’t get sick. This is my 3rd night in a row with less then 4hours of sleep.
