Aripiprazole Withdrawal

People who are subjected to the experience of Aripiprazole withdrawal symptoms may face the most difficult of antipsychotic withdrawals. We can help.

As an antipsychotic, Aripiprazole (also known as Abilify) is used primarily for the treatment of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. When discontinued it has demonstrated Aripiprazole side effects that often require knowledgeable help.

Need help with Aripiprazole withdrawal?

Alternative to Meds has been the expert on Aripiprazole withdrawal for over 15 years. We have published evidence regarding our success. Underlying issues can in many cases be addressed in much less toxic ways. We find that frequently there were medical conditions, or that the original factors that contributed to the crisis have since shifted, were diagnosed prematurely or even misdiagnosed.

Common antipsychotic withdrawal reactions are flu-like symptoms and fatigue. However, since this drug is used almost exclusively for serious mental disorders, the primary withdrawal symptoms are depression, recurrent manic attacks, and hallucinations, as well as delusions. The main cause for withdrawal is that your body gets accustomed to the drug and needs the drug to carry out normative functioning. Withdrawal is the neurochemistry attempting to stabilize itself. We have techniques proven to simplify this process.

Never Abruptly Stop Taking Aripiprazole

It is strongly recommended that use of antipsychotics is never abruptly stopped if Aripiprazole abuse is present, or even if you feel an improvement in your condition after taking it for a few days. Individuals are often given these medications during a manic episode or when other drugs have failed to work. While they may seem effective at first, these drugs can cause more problems than they were prescribed to treat, including Aripiprazole addiction. Aripiprazole withdrawal treatment is advised, as antipsychotic withdrawal can cause a worsening mental state and other associated reactions can be health-threatening. Quitting Aripiprazole cold turkey may cause psychosis and can drastically alter a person’s emotional state. At Alternative to Meds Center, our pleasant facility (in a world class destination), experienced team, and integrative treatments provide the perfect environment for getting off Aripiprazole comfortably.

More Severe Aripiprazole Withdrawal Symptoms

You may be shaky, fearful, feel faint, experience worsening psychosis, suffer a nervous episode, or other Aripiprazole withdrawal symptoms by attempting to get off Aripiprazole too quickly. The safest way to undergo this withdrawal is with Aripiprazole withdrawal help at an inpatient rehab facility whose protocol includes hydration, vitamins, targeted supplements and nutrition, and successful Aripiprazole tapering methods such as sauna therapy. No pill can cure anyone’s problems. Finding out what is bothering a person inside can help them come out of their depression. There is a specific answer or reason for each individual’s symptoms; however, it is usually a result of excessive dopamine. An excess of this reward neurochemical will cause everything to be stimulating and may cause manic episodes.1,2

How do antipsychotics like Aripiprazole affect neurochemistry?

aripiprazole withdrawal

Could neurotransmitter imbalances be what led you to Aripiprazole use? Excessive dopamine may occur from neurotoxins causing stimulation to neurology, which can be from toxic exposure, or often is caused by a genetic issue relating to the way in which the person clears these toxins. But, unfortunately, antipsychotics are usually prescribed before other things are investigated. Then, excitatory dopamine becomes restricted due to the use of the antipsychotic, and at the synapse, the brain changes. The synapse is a location where one nerve speaks to the next nerve; dopamine is what excites the originating nerve’s impulse to the receptors of the next nerve. When there is low dopamine because of the antipsychotic, neurology changes and additional receptors for dopamine are produced. When stopping Aripiprazole, a release of more dopamine is allowed and is now affecting an excessive number of dopamine receptors. This can result in hospitalization without professional Aripiprazole withdrawal treatment. We can discover what is causing your mental health symptoms and provide a scientific solution for the underlying problem.

Our program is also focused on the use of natural substances to achieve stable neurochemistry, body purification that clears accumulated environmental toxins, and holistic therapies such as yoga, personal exercise training, massage, amino treatment, targeted nutritional therapy, peer support, and sauna therapy.
