Does anyone take abilify? 6 Years, 3 Months ago  
Ok so I have been seeing psych docs for a few years. I started out bc of panic anxiety and depression, took paxil and felt ok for a year or so until it stopped working and i realized i had gotten extremely fat. After that my doc switched me every Month to a different ssri because each one was making me more anxious or agitated or doing nothing at all. Finally he sent me to another psych for a second opinion and she said I was bipolar. but wanted me to have my thyroid checked. I tried taking the lamictal she gave me but I only lasted 5 days bc I was panicking constantly after the second day of it and I had spontaneous yeast infection and i was terrified of the possible Steven johnson syndrome happening. I got the results of the thyroid test and I am hypothyroid which I thought "great that means I'm not bipolar I'm actually sick!". Well the first 2 weeks on the thyroid med I felt great!! Then I started having anxiety/panic and it's been going on for almost 2 weeks nonstop. I went to a new doc (i was needing to establish a primary care doc since I have been going to clinics) I said I wanted to see If the thyroid med was working or working to much or what the deal is and I asked for something to relieve the anxiety. I stupidly mentioned my "bipolar" diagnosis and so he said he would only give me something indicated for bipolar and he wanted to get my medical records and come back in 2 weeks. Well he gave me abilify Which I didn't realize till I filled it and read the insert that's it is an antipsychotic!!!! I am really scared to take this stuff and still think that the thyroid Meds are making my anxiety worse. My diagnosis is bipolar 2 - I don't get really manic and have never been psychotic so i think it's a little much but he insists that it will help my anxiety - it's 2 mg. Can anyone tell me anything about this stuff?? My concern is being a twitchy drooling idiot or slurring my speech - I can't lose my Job or take time off. I am at a loss as to whether I should just try it or not I'm so scared!!

Well since no one answered I took it anyway - at bedtime not good I didn't sleep but somehow still felt fantastic the next day, waited and took again this morn. Been a bit tired and yawned quite a bit but still feeling good! I get nauseated when smoking a cig which is weird but hey maybe I can quit those at some point!

Good, it seems to be working for you including making smoking distasteful (yay!). Just a note, it's advisable to get a second opinion (if you can afford it) if you don't agree with your diagnosing or prescribing physician. Secondly, always let your physician know exactly how your meds are affecting you. I'm happy you're feeling better . . . hugs

Re:Does anyone take abilify? 6 Years, 3 Months ago  
Thanks!! I have started seeing some side effects since last post - acid reflux, which makes me have a slight hard time breathing due to chest tightness, chest pain, sore throat (very mild) and hiccups (i had em at least 4 times at work today) and upset stomach, overheating accompanied by nausea (this is weird for me being hypothyroid I'm usually always cold!) and some dizziness. I think I'm gonna try again to take at bedtime with an ambien and a prilosec and then take thyroid in the morn. I don't go back for more bloodwork till 9/2 - but considering halving the dose on my own bc I still believe it to be tok much (or at least I know I felt better when I forgot to take it lol) wish me luck!
