Common Questions and Answers about Abilify withdrawal how long


Avatar f tn I have been experiencing upset stomach and headaches since I have stopped abilify. Does anyone know how long withdrawal symptoms last?
603543 tn?1255298050 He also gave me Klonopin (1mg as needed) for the anxiety that came with the withdrawal. I'm not sure how long you can expect to go through these symptoms, but definitely give your doctor and call and see if there is anything they can do. I found the anxiety was the worst part, and was only slightly relieved by taking long walks.... Let me know what happens!
Avatar f tn ) The funny thing (by which I mean interesting, not ha-ha) about withdrawal waves is that, no matter how mild or short-lived they might be, or how long of a window you had before that, EVERY SINGLE TIME you're in the middle of a wave, you start to think, "This is me. This is me forever, I'll never get better," despite evidence to the contrary. This is the nature of protracted withdrawal...our brains seem to focus on the here and now, and we get sucked in.
Avatar f tn Now I get alternating bouts of the two weekly, for no reason whatsoever. I've read that Abilify use AND withdrawal can cause anxiety, tachy- and bradycardia, excessive crying, etc. But I've yet to read anything suggesting that suddenly withdrawal could cause these symptoms permanently, and now--21 months after stopping Abilify--I'm still getting these things, with tests for anemia and hypothyroidism and whatnot all coming back normal. I know that was long, I'm sorry...
1564087 tn?1308951118 Anyway, I haven't been on abilify very long (a month or so), but I have not noticed any side effects. Possibly excitability, but I am not sure. I switched my dose from the prescribed qhs to qam. Seems to have helped with me winding down to sleep bc my sleep got really screwed right after adding abilify at bedtime. I have noticed a difference in how good I feel, it's nothing drastic, but I didn't need anything drastic, just a tiny boost.
Avatar n tn 5 and I was doing great On April 30th I was told to stop taking abilify completly That is exactly when the problem started The same day I quit the abilify is the same day I started to have those allergic reactions again with my mouth,face,jaw,trouble swallowing, a little trouble breathin, dry mouth All day Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday I have had this problem What doesn't make any sense is that I am no longer taking Abilify and Im still having these problems and here all along we thou
2010625 tn?1329375656 Think back if you may have taken the Abilify at a slightly different time and what the specific titration you have for this. All of this would be worth discussing with your psychiatrist but for right now just ask them if anything of concern is happening and what to do next.
Avatar f tn Just wondering is it because of coming of the olanzipine. How long do withdrawal symptoms last? Has anyone else had the same problem coming off olanzipine?
Avatar f tn If you're lucky you won't have any withdrawal but I'm guessing you are by the nature of your question by asking how long your withdrawal should last. I unfortunately can't answer how long it will last from personal experience but I've heard it can last four weeks.
2082202 tn?1396816902 I'm slow and confused and I have feelings of depersonalization. I'm so tired. Could this be withdrawal from the Abilify???
2190999 tn?1504992491 I know. Some of my meds are copayment of $300 pr month. With good coverage. It's going to depend on if you're on other meds too, & how long,what dose you were on the Abilify.
Avatar f tn My question is if excessive sweating is a withdrawal side effect that anyone here has experienced and if so how long does this last? It’s really bad and I keep taking showers but I’m sweating so bad under my arms. It is disgusting. Also how long do Abilify withdrawals last? I’ve been taking the med for 3 months now starting out at 5mgs and have been on 15mgs for about a month now. I’m having mood swings (currently feeling good though with lots of energy) but I’m guessing this can be expected.
Avatar f tn But like I mentioned, besides feeling drowsy more than usual, I'm really not having any withdrawal symptoms up to this point, though it's only been a week since my last doses. Am I just in a phase of false sense of security here? Will things suddenly take a turn for the worse? Will I be experiencing major withdrawal symptoms soon?
Avatar m tn My partner has taken Effexor for the last 2-3 as treatment for mild OCD and overall it's been very effective. We recently discovered though that her blood pressure was seriously elevated. She was convinced that Effexor SR was the culprit so she immediately sought help to ween herself off. She went through a month or so of gradual reduction, which was awful for her, and it's been a further 5 weeks since she took her last dose and the withdrawal symptoms are still absolutley horendous.
Avatar n tn how does one deal with the mental part of withdrawal?( from hydrocodone which i have been using for years, low amt--4/a day) depression, no self-esteem,social anxiety etc. started taking wellbutrin about 2 weeks ago.
Avatar f tn For myself when I came off 150mg cold turkey i went through horrible withdrawl for 10-14 days the each day after that it got a little better it took around a month to totally stop having any effects. and I was back to normal. You can do it it seems impossible in the begining but It is only 1 month out of the rest of your life.
1030383 tn?1338464385 It's been three weeks and I've had terrible nausea, stomach pain, fatigue, and generally not feeling good. How long will this last? And, any ideas on how to deal with mania since I can't just "knock myself out" like usual? I need to get enough sleep to stay out of the hospital!
Avatar f tn Having racing thoughts, anxiety, mood swings, bone pain and sweats. From what I’ve read, this is Abilify withdrawal. Do I just have to feel awful until Lamictal dose is high enough to be therapeutic? Thanks!!
Avatar f tn How do I find a neurologist who is educated in Effexor withdrawal? I have a mild seizure disorder, my Mother was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia, and I am "addicted" to Effexor, which I have taken for 10 years and cannot seem to break free from. Put that all together and I feel as though my worsening memory issues spell our DEMENTIA in big, bold letters. Can anyone make any suggestions? Thanks...
Avatar n tn I have had bouts of flu type feelings and I feel very tired and worn out. Basically I feel like **** and I dont have the flu. My question is, How long does it take to get Zoloft out of your system? I know your never to stop taking SSRI meds abruptly but when you follow a good tapering schedule and you still deal with wwithdrawal symptoms that's enough to tick a person off. My doctor wants me to start Lexapro but he wants me to wait until Zoloft is completely washed from my system.
Avatar n tn Should I seek treatment, and begin to take my medications again, then slowly get off the medications the correct way? How long will these withdrawal effects last? what is the quickest way possible that I will feel better, by taking the medications again, or waiting until this withdrawal effects go away? Another issue is, I no longer have insurance in new jersey, so how can I get treatment, and my medication with no insurance? what do you recommend I should do?
Avatar m tn My psychiatrist has tried me on ambien, lunesta, Ive' even used 2 lunesta and I DO NOT GET SLEEPY! I've done research on sleep disorders, zyprexa withdrawal, etc. and a lot of information states that zyprexa withdrawal can cause insomnia. However, is this the same as not feeling sleepy? Its been a month and I haven't been tired and whats even wierder is that i wasn't tired when i got back on the zyprexa after stopping it for 4 days. I am wondering if i am ever going to be sleepy tired again.

Avatar m tn Unfortuately, I'm still experiencing a lot of muscle ridgidity, particularly in my shoulders and when I stretch I feel as if my muscles are quivering within. Does anyone else have this? How long does it take to be off of the drug before it goes away? Another accompanying symptom I have is lightheadedness 24/7. It gets worse when I go from sitting to standing.

Avatar f tn I'm 22 years old been on just about every depression med in the book since I was diagnosed with depression at 16. I've been to tons of psychiatrists to counselors and it's been a long hall. I've been wanting to quit probably since about A year after my parents chose to put me on them. Recently found a doctor that has been helping me taper but then decides to throw Zoloft into the cocktail. It was about two weeks later that I started having bad side effects and lots of anxiety.

Avatar n tn How do i cope with a chronic daily headache, severe depersonalization syndrome, and horrible anxiety stemming from my bizarre headache that no one can treat successfully. What do I say to doctors who have given up on me and they are the only ones I can see since I have no insurance. How do I convince them to give me a second (and serious) look when the neuro's secretary tells me "but the Dr.
