Headaches, insomnia, and anxiety are some of the common antipsychotic side effects for Abilify. Most side effects feel uncomfortable and bothersome but others are painful, serious or even dangerous.

Abnormal muscle movements, restless, jitteriness, or high blood pressure are some of the serious side effects with Abilify and should be reported to your healthcare provider. Abilify, which is also called aripiprazole, is an antipsychotic and its side effects have been studied thoroughly in clinical trials.

During investigative trials, side effects which occur in a group of individuals taking aripiprazole are noted and compared to the experiences of side effects which occurred in a group of individuals not taking aripiprazole. This way, researchers are able to identify what side effects appear, how they compare to people who don’t take the medication, and how often side effects appear, also see Abilify alternatives for more information. In many cases, side effects of Abilify outweigh the positive benefits of taking the drug; subsequently many users want to discontinue use of their medication. After long-term treatment with an antipsychotic, long-term side effects can appear such as developing a dependence or Abilify withdrawal symptoms.

In clinical studies, Abilify common side effects were as follows: headaches occurred in 27% of users, sedation occurred in 23%, 19% experienced agitation, 18% had insomnia, 17% felt feelings of fatigue, 17% felt anxiety, 16% experienced drowsiness, nausea in 15%, vomiting in 14%, restlessness in 12%, and 11% experienced constipation as a side effect. There are several serious side effects that should be reported to a medical healthcare professional for Abilify side effects help, including: anemia, gallstones, kidney stones, high blood sugar, frequent urination, extreme hunger and increased thirst, which are signs of antipsychotic-induced diabetes; extreme weight gain, hypertension (high blood pressure), suicidal thoughts, abnormal muscle movements, priapism (a painful erection that does not go away), arrhythmias (irregular heart rhythms), and signs of malignant neuroleptic syndrome. Malignant neuroleptic syndrome can include the following: stiff muscles, high fever, sweating, confusion, tachycardia (increased heart rate), and an irregular pulse. Since this medication is often consumed in combination with other prescription medications or drugs, Abilify interactions can also be of concern.

Individuals medicated on antipsychotics usually feel unable to perform as they wish to in life, find difficulty in setting goals, and have a hard time feeling reward. There is often too much Dopamine (the “reward” neurochemical), and too much Dopamine can result in over-stimulation and mania. Neurotoxins that are stimulating the neurology can cause this. This may be from an exposure to toxins or genetics linking to how the individual clears toxins from their body. For example, a poorly functioning methylator will be unable to clear toxic heavy metals, which will collect in brain and nerve tissue. Then, when the individual takes an antipsychotic like Abilify; they are left without the feelings of life reward because of the Dopamine restricting effects of antipsychotics. When Dopamine is low because of the drug, neurology will change, and produce more receptors for Dopamine. Then, this little amount of Dopamine will have the same stimulation effect even while taking the antipsychotic. The dose is then increased, which brings additional side effects with Abilify.

Then, if the person stops taking the drug, more Dopamine will be released and now will be impacting too many Dopamine receptors. So, at Alternative to Meds Center Rehab , AZ, the side effects for Abilify are eliminated through utilization of the following methods. Lab testing to identify underlying causes of symptoms, where toxicity is commonly determined as the problem, and then we focus on detoxifying the person.

Our program is designed to stabilize the neurochemistry by using natural substances, ridding accumulated neurotoxins by using detoxification and other holistic therapies including yoga, personal exercise training, IV amino therapies, nutritional treatments, peer support, and massage to aid expected withdrawal symptoms.
