Common Questions and Answers about How long does abilify withdrawal last


Avatar f tn I have been experiencing upset stomach and headaches since I have stopped abilify. Does anyone know how long withdrawal symptoms last?
2010625 tn?1329375656 After I have been awake for a while they have slowly went away I am still a tiny bit dizzy, and drowsy still after 2 cups of coffee I just feel like I am not waking up still feel half asleep. Does anyone know if these side effects are serious or if it is something that will go away as I get use to the medication. I know I should be asking my doctor these questions but it is the weekend and my doctor is not in his office until Monday.
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???
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 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.
Avatar f tn I'm going through this right now. It's long does it take for you to stop withdrawing? I feel like I'm going crazy.
Avatar f tn Nobody can tell you, including your psychiatrist, how long this will last -- it could end tomorrow or last for months. Who knows? We react differently, and we react differently to different meds. And again, you might be suffering side effects of the Lamictal -- most meds for mental illness take a few weeks before they start working but side effects start right away. The only way to know for sure is to finish the taper off of a med before starting another. It's your choice, in the end.
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 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 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.
5100586 tn?1363648354 In some people, Lyrica causes some extremely horrific withdrawal symptoms while others have no WD. In these people, it does not seem to matter how long you were on the drug or what your dose was. Also, it does not seem to matter how slowly you taper. Some people seem to think a slow taper is the answer and if you have issues, you clearly didn't taper slowly enough. Also, the issue does not seem to be getting the drug out of your body necessarily.
Avatar f tn did i get addicted. i've stopped taking them again. i suspose i'll get sick. does this last long.

Avatar f tn I know I need to wean the medication slowly but don't know whether I should take 500 mg daily and skip a day and then take it again the next or what is best to do or how long to do it. Could anyone give me any suggestions? I would greatly appreciate any feedback.

574118 tn?1305138884 as to cycling usually it's due to the antidepressant usually i suppose. abilify does replace the AD, although an AP but abilify is good for depression. so i would recommend to take it in the morning only. have you tried taking abilify only with xanax?
Avatar n tn How long until you start to loose weight on Wellbutrin? Does that part start right after the 1st 2 weeks? I have been binge eating and cant seem to control my sweet tooth as i used to in the past! I just started Wellbutrin 2 days ago!!! I was on Paxil in the past and gained a total of 20 pounds in just 4 months!
Avatar f tn i made it 6 weeks without relapse and have another 3 days clean after that. this was just the last time i quit.. before that i felt lucky to last even 3 days.
1039200 tn?1314915608 -( I guess I will think again what I can do tomorrow, it doesn't feel good to be this pushy. Anyone else have this kind of experience? How bad does it have to be to go to the ER?
Avatar f tn You need to find a new doctor. I'm a bit confused...exactly HOW much Xanax are you taking, and for how long? Is your taper supposed to be every 2 hours, or is that how often you dose yourself? Like I said in your other thread, it is imperative that you taper off Xanax under the guidance and supervision of a doctor who knows his/her way around these meds. Can you try to find a new doctor on Monday? Do you have enough to maintain until then? That would be my advice.
Avatar f tn I'm so sorry for what you're going through. Couldn't the doc have just put you back on your prior dose? Cold turkey from Effexor is just NOT a good idea! I would recommend talking to your doctor ASAP! Let us know how it goes!
Avatar f tn what does have you been on and for how long? This will give me a better point to reference your WD symptoms from.
Avatar f tn I have found it extremely difficult and wonder how long the anxiety will continue after stopping the risperidone which for me is just 6 days away.
Avatar f tn When the psychiatrist could finally see me she attributed some of my anxiety to Xanax withdrawal and akathisia from the abilify. She did genetic testing to find out how I metabolize drugs ( it turns out I am prone to side effects than most people ) and prescribed Geodon and Buspar. I am taking neither. The buspar works fine but makes me dizzy. The Geodon I didn't try. I am tired of medication and feel more like my old self without it.
Avatar n tn Now I am just on Wellbutrin and Abilify. They work wonders for me, great combo. So, how come you are on so much meds? Depakote and Risperdone are very corrective for BP so why is he slapping you onto Geodon too??
Avatar m tn Liann how much klonopin were you on and for how long? Did you taper? Stopping cold turkey is not advised. You stopped adderal, klonopin & Oxys all at the same time? Please provide some more info.
Avatar n tn of medications in your body--how long they stay in your system and how you need to take them at regular times and how long you can go between not taking them without having effects. Lasty, though, there's my mom. I'm really worried about her. She was diagnosed bi-polar and was taking lithium for yrs, more recently zyprexa. However, she's diabetic. A doctor recently advised her to lower her dose. She did, to about 2.5 mgs/day. It's been about three months.
