Abilify Muscle Spasms Causes and Reviews


Angina is chest pain or discomfort you feel when there is not enough blood flow to your heart muscle. Your heart muscle needs the oxygen that the blood carries. Angina may feel like pressure or a squeezing pain in your chest. It may feel like indigestion. You may also feel pain in your shoulders, arms, neck, jaw, or back.

Angina is a symptom of coronary artery disease (CAD), the most common heart disease. CAD happens when a sticky substance called plaque builds up in the arteries that supply blood to the heart, reducing blood flow.

There are three types of angina:

  • Stable angina is the most common type. It happens when the heart is working harder than usual. Stable angina has a regular pattern. Rest and medicines usually help.
  • Unstable angina is the most dangerous. It does not follow a pattern and can happen without physical exertion. It does not go away with rest or medicine. It is a sign that you could have a heart attack soon.
  • Variant angina is rare. It happens when you are resting. Medicines can help.

Not all chest pain or discomfort is angina. If you have chest pain, you should see your health care provider.

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.
