Has anyone on Abilify ever felt jittery or the need to constantly be moving or like you need something in your hands at all time? I’ve been diagnosed with ADHD but this is totally different after starting the medication.
Restlessness and Agitation
Abilify • Type: Oral
No, but I had a panic attack when I took it, felt like I was dying
Yes i had that issue very badly with Abilify. I always felt restless like i was supposed to be doing something. I also got really tired. I ended up having to go off it because the side effects were too severe.
if u liked Abilify you could try it again with cogentin 👇
how bad were the side effects of you don’t mind me asking like unbearable or like constant dull feeling? That’s kinda how I feel. I like how this medication helps my mood but the restlessness and same feeling you described is very much affecting my ability to concentrate and focus and my anxiety is scared of getting drug induced Parkinsons
i was given something that helped with the restlessness (don't remember the name) but it was the fatigue that really made me need to quit. Even with tons of caffeine i was just so tired all the time and my productivity at work was really suffering. I'm on Lexapro now and doing well with it (but i just have cyclothymia, not bipolar)
get on cogentin, it's a parkinson's med but people (me) use it for akathisia (a common side effect of Abilify)
did you use that in addition to abilify or instead of?
I just went up on my dose and I haven’t noticed that but I’ve been extremely forgetful to the point where I’ve been forgetting questions I asked my partner 4 minutes prior
