Abilify Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome Causes and Reviews


Most of the time, medicines make our lives better. They reduce aches and pains, fight infections, and control problems such as high blood pressure or diabetes. But medicines can also cause unwanted reactions.

One problem is interactions, which may occur between

  • Two drugs, such as aspirin and blood thinners
  • Drugs and food, such as statins and grapefruit
  • Drugs and supplements, such as ginkgo and blood thinners
  • Drugs and diseases, such as aspirin and peptic ulcers

Interactions can change the actions of one or both drugs. The drugs might not work, or you could get side effects.

Side effects are unwanted effects caused by the drugs. Most are mild, such as a stomach aches or drowsiness, and go away after you stop taking the drug. Others can be more serious.

Drug allergies are another type of reaction. They can be mild or life-threatening. Skin reactions, such as hives and rashes, are the most common type. Anaphylaxis, a serious allergic reaction, is more rare.

When you start a new prescription or over-the-counter medication, make sure you understand how to take it correctly. Know which other medications and foods you need to avoid. Ask your health care provider or pharmacist if you have questions.

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.

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.
