... health problem now, most likely its due to the abilify. Also, I did not know about discontinuing it slowly, I just discontinued it directly, and that probably made the problem far worse
Your pharmacist should have advised you of the discontinuation of the drug when you got the prescription. What is happening, because for the most part side effects stop when the drug is out of your system? The info on the drug says don't stop taking it unless you talk to your doc, but it does not warn of withdrawal. It should have.
Hi John, can you start the Abilify again, and this time slowly taper? I'm not sure how long you have been off of it, but if it hasn't been too long, I would try to start again, possibly at a lesser dose, depending on your symptoms. Sometimes doctors try and taper too fast. I always insist that they triple the amount of tapering time with me, and for me that works.
Best wishes to you!
