I gained too much weight by taking Zyprexa. That's why I am thinking of switching to Abilify. My doctor also recommended it. I am only afraid of side effects since I have already high blood pressure. I also don't like being too excited. What shall I do? Just try? Thanks.
I was also, on zyprexa, and felt it did not work. Too many side effects with weight gain expecially, lathargic, and feeling sedated all the time. I am now on abilify at a low dose 20mg. And find this helpful with my thinking judgement and dose not make me gain weight and has very little side effects to it. This is a very good medication to be on although checking with the doctor first is always the best bet. I have been on abilify ten years. And Zyprexa almost three. And I prefer abilify. It might just be the right answer. And it is a good medicine hardally any side effects verses zyprexa. Any questions feel free to ask me. lollypop123
