Common Questions and Answers about Abilify and oxycodone

abilify

I've been taking about 3-4 10/325 Hydrocodone or 3-4 525 Oxycodone (I'm not terribly knowledgeable about drugs so I don't know the difference between Oxycodone and Oxycontin?). Plus, I take about 2-4 Xanax a day and have Buspirone HCL 15 mg too but hate the way those make me dizzy so rarely take them. I'm taking all kinds of vitamins now after reading all the advice. But I'm wondering how long will I think of suicide?
I read side effets of drugs like Depakote, Lamactil, Abilify and Seroquel and blanch and yet people who look at Lithium see it as scary... May be that I am biased because it works for me but its nothing to be scared of.
Hello, I was on high doses of hydrododone daily for about 2 years (up to 150 mg a day) and then progressed to sporatic iv use of opiates such as morphine, oxycodone, and heroin. I went to rehab 2 years ago and have been on suboxone ever since. At one time I was taking 4 8mg tabs a day but am now down to 1. I have read that opiate abuse damages the brain's ability to produce endorphins, and that opiates mimic the effects of endorphins on the brain. I have always battled depression and still do.
Eventually, I was so sick of the side-effects of the bipolar meds (Zyprexa, Abilify, and Prozac cocktail at that time) that I took myself off them and suffered the worse withdrawal period of my life... and I'm a recovered heroin addict. When I was finally through the withdrawals from those medications which made me dysfunctional beyond my normal episodes of depression and hypomania, I obviously did not feel good.
) - Hydrocodone Oxycodone Anti-depressants - Lexapro - Currently taking Wellbutrin XL - Currently taking Nortriptyline Celexa Prozac Paxil - Complete nightmare Zoloft - Worked well, but suddenly stopped...? Cymbalta Effexor Mirtazapine Amatriptyline Augmenter Drugs - Buspar - Just.....
Its just most of the medications out in the next few years (including one potential this year) are clinically similar to Abilify so they have the same effects of akathesia and long term effects of tardive dykinesia and diabetes (less of a risk than others but still on the warning label, someone I knew got it).
Pharmaceutical drugs have officially been declared a leading cause of death in America today, and leading the way are opioid-based painkillers like Vicodin (hydrocodone bitartrate and acetaminophen), OxyContin (oxycodone HCI), Percocet (oxycodone and acetaminophen), codeine, and morphine. According to a study out of Brandeis University in Massachusetts, prescription painkillers are now responsible for causing more fatal overdoses than both heroin and cocaine combined. The U.S.
Just quitting oxys, klonopin and Adderall all at once will majorly put your body through a lot.....but then currently taking ambien, Ativan and abilify would definitely make me foggy headed and sad! If you goal is to get off all addictive substances....it would be wise not to add more drugs that are addictive. The ambien is an anti-hypnotic drug that is addictive....
I looked at your medications, and both the Abilify and the Lexapro both have the uncommon chance of causing hepatitis and raising the liver enzymes. 2) With the comprehensive tests that you have had, that would evaluate for many of the more serious conditions leading to your symptoms. If the liver enzymes continue to be elevated, you can consider a liver biopsy for a more definitive diagnosis. 3) If the liver enzymes continue to be elevated, I would pursue the liver biopsy.
I took a test last April and found that I had extremely low levels of calming aminos and high levels of excitatory aminos in my body. So a program was set up for me by Neuroscience Labs to correct the inbalances. However, I still do not feel right 80% of the time. I do not know if it just takes time or that I want to find out if there is something else I can do or take like meditation practice again. I was a meditator for 30 years.
I have tried the medications below and the only thing that helps the racing heart and everything else is the opiates. I have very many of the same symptoms as cushings and a pituitary tumor which started when I broke my nose almost 6 years ago. Medicine's I've been on since 2003; Anti-Depressants / Anti-Anxiety Medications (with little to no help...most of the time I didn't even realize I was taking anything.
I have heard of them and they sound promising, but I have been let down before with new drugs that didn't live up to my expectations. Abilify and Pristiq being two newer drugs that never really worked for me. I like the idea of this triple Reuptake approach, but the FDA could have it tied up until 2010. There is also a new SSRI in the testing phases that has no sexual side effects. I guess that will be good for people in which SSRI's work. Doesn't do me much good.
So glad you are choosing to join us. This is the place to be if you want off Tramadol. Lots of love, information and empathy here!
I have been on soma for over a year, I also take percocet and xanax, and the soma is by far the most pwerfull med I have ever taken, It is not evil, thats just stupid, it is somewhat addictive though, I took 3 a day for over a year and stoped pretty quickly and the wihdraw was not that bad, not as bad as Percocet [oxycodone] I started taking the soma again a few months ago, I dont understand why is not a controled substance though.
One of my wisdom teeth is coming up the slightest bit crooked, not enough to effect it once it's fully erupted, but just enough to irritate the gum and cause it to swell and thus cause me to be in a rather lot of pain I also have random other pain, sometimes my ankle, sometimes my hip, sometimes my elbow(slipped in the kitchen one time and bashed it really hard into the fridge) to name a few.
Thank you for the info, I am actually already seeing a psychiatrist in another office that is prescribing me the 60mg of Cymbalta and 2mg of Abilify per day so I feel that I am already covering both the psychological and the physical aspects of my condition. It is really difficult for me in that I have always kind of been the person who keeps to myself and only relies on myself and no one else. Now I need to be able to ask for help and and share my feelings and sificulties with my doctors.
It makes me very angry that these Doctors know and aren't telling people. I don't believe that they are ignorant. I've been over and over it again and again. It makes no sense that I would know more as a user of the drug than they would. There's so little on Tramadol or Ultram on the web. Tons on other drugs. Ok so the most alarming part of the Tramadol we would think would be the fact that it is a synthetic opiate. It's a Narcotic. It's just been slipped thru the schedule.
I am sick of breathing and thinking and being. No one could ever love me no one I am **** and just want to die no one cares..............I feel empty inside I need help but don't have money to get it I want to die so bad. I am stuck in a pit with no hope and no one cares I just want to die. Please help I need help. But there is no hope.
I have to take two. One in morning and abilify at night. I've gotten so depressed today I wanted to find a cave to camp in. You are a beautiful human being who has something to offer us here. You deserve and have the right to be happy. I know you don't feel good right now but that will pass. Remember it never rains forever.....the sun will.come out. What type of hobbies do you like to do. And.I would give you a big hug now and tell you this too will pass.
There are several cases of bipolar in children younger than 8. I am too tired to dig them up right now, but it does happen but not often. Secondly, I too refused to give my daughter ADHD meds. I freaked out over giving her speed and only gave it to her a few times. Frankly, I was afraid she might get addicted at age 4 or 5. So, here she is at 6 and we are re-trying the meds. These meds DO NOT make her stimulated at all....they make her SLEEPY.
My pain is still excruciating, I've been taking 10 mg every 4 hours instead (of oxycodone) and that's not better. I see my doctor on the 31st and I'll tell her, about the 10 mg, about the intensity of the pain and I guess we'll up the oxycodone. There is no PM doctor in my area, but my doctor is very good and comprehensive. I did 3 semester in a row, fall, winter and summer and I'm on my first 2 weeks of real vacations in more than a year. The semester is starting on the 30th, I'm scared.
I found myself withdrawing from people and activities. I slept a lot but was flat and depressed especially in the morning. You can quit! You can then more accurately assess your pain level. There are new treatments for fibromyalgia and many people find that the drugs actually had made their pain worse. You might consult with a drug counselor. They will be drug savvy and can help you taper. Or you can use this site.
I have had chronic bacterial infections in my sinuses, tonsels and throat for the past two months and have been on many rounds of antibiotics, my infections are gone but I was left with a strong deep cough and now phlegm and swelling in my throat. No doctors have been able to tell me what it could be, my ear nose throat specialist said it was most likely acid reflux disease, but I don't buy that.
I have been prescribed both Zoloft and Prozac with Klonopin for the symptoms of anxiety and depression, but I still seem to pick at me head. The kicker is that I also do this in my sleep. I will literally wake up with blood under my nails. What treatment options are there other than medication? Should I tell my primary care physician or should I talk to a psychiatrist? What are some of the causes of this, could it be OCD?
So, what dose did everyone here have their success? And what type of diet/eating plan and exercise plan did you do to help it along? I'm desperate to lose 40 lbs (half of which I gained on Zoloft-no longer taking). PLEASE respond if you had any weightloss on this drug, I'm very curious. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!
My anxiety is through the roof and I can't get a grip. I just feel so defeated. The psych. wanted to try Abilify but said while it's supposed to not have a weight gain effect, one of his patients could not stop eating on it. Not my first choice as I'm overweight and was hoping to have my system free of all meds to kick up my weight loss efforts.
