Abilify Agitation Causes and Reviews


Caring for someone who has Alzheimer's disease (AD) can be stressful and overwhelming. It's important to take care of yourself. Ask for and accept help.

Talk to the doctor. Find out what treatments might help control symptoms or address behavior problems. Find a support group. Others who have "been there" may be able to help and will understand.

If there are times of day that the person is less confused or more cooperative, take advantage of that in daily routines. Consider using adult day care or respite services. These offer a break with the peace of mind that the patient is being taken care of. Begin to plan for the future. This may include

  • Getting financial and legal documents in order
  • Looking into assisted living or nursing homes
  • Finding out what your health insurance and Medicare will cover

How long does it take for Abilify to get out of your system?
Wed, 29 Jul 2009
Does anyone know of anyone who took Abilify during pregnancy?
Sat, 29 Aug 2009
As human experience is limited, administration of aripiprazole should be used in pregnancy only if the potential benefit to the mother outweighs the potential risk to the foetus.

Abilify for BiPolar Disorder, how does it work for you?
Tue, 01 Dec 2009
Hi I am wondering if Abilify can stunt a teenager's height growth, as in making them shorter than they would have been if they never took Abilify.
Mon, 03 Nov 2008
Severe akesthesia, cogentin and valium only helped - started at 15 mg - went up to 30mg, on came the most severe akesthesia I have ever encountered. Pacing for hours, clawing at my chest, screaming for it to stop in the corner of my bathroom, extremem irritability. Very much affected my quality of life. Made me scared to try other antipsychotics. On Geodon now, seems fine. I do well on risperdal as well, but have weight gain.
