Taking Abilify with Antidepressants

The latest Abilify commercial on television states, “One option your doctor may consider is adding Abilify.  Only Abilify is FDA approved to treat depression in adults when added to an antidepressant…”

It goes on to list, as fast as possible, the following side effects:

“Call your doctor if your depression worsens or you have unusual changes in mood or behavior or thoughts of suicide.  Antidepressants can increase these in children, teens and young adults.  Elderly dementia patients taking Abilify have an increased risk of death or stroke.  Call your doctor if you have high fever, stiff muscles or confusion on Abilify, as these may be signs of a life-threatening reaction; or uncontrollable muscle movments, as these could become permanent.  High blood sugar has been reported with Abilify and medicines like it.  In some cases extreme high blood sugar can lead to coma or death.  Other risks include dizziness upon standing, seizures, impaired judgment or motor skills, or trouble swallowing.  Talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of adding Abilify if an antidepressant alone isn’t enough.”

They should state, “For more side effects add Abilfy if the side effects of an antidepressant isn’t enough.”

If you wish to learn how to safely stop taking Abilify or any psychiatric drug visit one of the links in our right-navigation panel for various programs both do-it-yourself and inpatient facilities.  Under “Free Books and DVDs” you will find a link to a great online book that helps you get off psychiatric drugs safely.

Enjoy our site and be responsible when taking medications by thoroughly researching the side effects yourself.  Doctors just do not seem to have the time to keep up with all of the drugs on the current market.
