Abilify Overview

Aripiprazole, sold under the brand name Abilify among others, is an atypical antipsychotic. It is recommended and primarily used in the treatment of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.[5] Other uses include as an add-on treatment in major depressive disorder, tic disorders, and irritability associated with autism.[6] According to a Cochrane review, evidence for the oral form in schizophrenia is not sufficient to determine effects on general functioning.[...

Does a child need Abilify 5 Mg, Bupropion 75mg, and Chlorpromazine 25mg for Bipolar and ADHD?

My foster child is on Ability 5 mg, Bupropion 75 mg, Chlorpromazine 25mg 3 times per day for bipolar and ADHD. Does he need these meds that seem to do the same thing? I have the sense since he has been with me that he does not have anger problems any more than any other 11 year old child. He did tell me that he used anger to get away from the home he was in because he was being beaten by an older child. I will admit he may be adhd but bipolar you can't make me believe. ## I'd suggest discussing it with his doctor and/or getting a second opinion. It is an unfortunate fact that many children end up over medicated and many doctors don't review what the child is taking and just leave them on them, rather than do a review and see if it is needed any longer. Have you talked to any...

Abilify withdrawal

I was on 10mg of Abilify for at least 5 years as an add-on to my anti-depressant for my major depressive disorder, on top of my bulimia and anxiety. I went down to 5mg in the last year I was on it. I had no idea it had such bad physical withdrawal effects. My old doctor told me to wean off of it last year when I decided I didn't need it anymore, but did not give me any sort any sort of percentage or schedule. I got terribly sick about a month and a half after I weaned off of it for only 2 weeks and didn't even make the connection right away. So I've been taking 2.5mg every 35-45days for the past year... basically every time I get sick. Now I have terrible joint pain, which I thought was arthritis (I'm only 36 years old) and I just went to an orthopedist and she found no ...

Abilify Tapering Off

My son safely tapered off Abilify. His last dose was Saturday July 4th. Curious how long the drug remains in his system. And, once it's completely gone from his blood stream, will there be any withdrawal symptoms I need to watch for? He is non verbal, profoundly disabled, otherwise I would ask him if he is feeling any withdrawals. Thanks! ## By now the drug is certainly out of his system, as I know this reply is late from when you last posted. But regarding your concerns on withdrawal symptoms I would try to watch specifically for any signs of depression, irritability, and other mood-related changes of that nature. Tapering the dose down as he did, should've lessened the possibility of any severe withdrawal symptoms. However, because everyone responds to these medications differ...

Abilify for children

My son has just been put on Abilify for bipolar - He is 5yrs old... Does anyone have any advice or experience with children on this medication? ## Well, I am not sure how crazy I am about a child that young using it, it has not been evaluated for safety and efficacy in children under 18 yet. Here's the page with the info: Ablify Info Click Here ## My son has been on abilify for a little over a month and has been placed on this med for depression My son has also been diagnosed with add. Thus far its worked great hes no longer withdrawn, he can focus more and attentive and most of all he's happy it seems as though we may not need the add medicine. I feel as though you wont know if a med works until you try it and if we do start seeing side effects then he will have to stop taking ...

Abilify and Chronic Pain Relief

Hello, Has anyone experienced a relief in chronic pain while on Abilify. I am convinced it is this medication that relieved my chronic neck pain. This has given me the idea it might help my mother who is on a daily dose of morphine. I want to bring this up to her Dr but don't want to sound crazy. What do you think? Is it possible? ## Hello, Mila! How are you and your mom? It is not a recognized effect of Abilify, so such use hasn't been approved, but yes, it is possible. Most psychiatric medications have been shown to have an affect on some types of pain. I can't say whether or not it will help your mother, that depends on what is causing her pain, however, there is a chance it could help. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## I think I'm going to mention it to h...

abilify and teens

My 13 yr old son has just been prescribed Abilify and I need to know if anyone has experience with their teen being on this. ## My son was on Abilify for about a year. He did really well on it except that he gained almost 50lbs. It helped him focus and concentrate but made hiim extremely hungry to the point that he was getting up in the middle of the night and gorging himself on food. ## My son took Abilify for about 2 years, ages 14-16, was not approved by the FDA for him at the time. He began taking it after an episode of waking me in the middle of the night telling me that satan told him to kill himself. He was blank and lacked emotion while he was taking it (which was reported to the mental health provider), but no weight gain. He truly lost his personality and sense of humor. He ha...

Coming off of 10 mg of abilify

I'm taking 10 mg of abilify and have been for 2 years- I would like to come off-think it's an ok decision as things are stable in my life - just not sure how to do it ..I'm also worried about the effects of this drug ## Hello, Abili! How are you? The best thing to do would be to consult your doctor, so they can help you set up a proper tapering schedule. If you just suddenly stop taking it, without tapering, it may cause some withdrawal effects, which the FDA lists as possibly including nausea, fever, chills, diarrhea, rebound depression and rebound anxiety. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I've been taking 10mg of Abilify for about three years. It's combined with lexapro. I've had enough of it as I feel I don't need it anymore. I've been learni...
