PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED SIDE EFFECTS WITH THE ABILIFY TABLETS, AND HOW DID YOU OVERCOME TO THE SIDE EFFECTS. MY SON JUST GOT OUT THE HOSPITAL AND THEY GAVE HIM ABILIFY 10 MGS FOR EZCHISOFRENIA?
DOES ANYDODY KNOW HOW TO CONTRAREST THE SIDES EFFECTS LIKE CRAMPS IN HIS LEGS, TARDIVE DYSKINESIA, AND AGITATION?
I AM SO SICK AND TIRED OF THIS DOCTORS MISTREATING MY SON AND GIVING HIM MEDICATIONS WITH-OUT ANY REAL DIAGNOSIS AND NOT GIVING HIM ANY INSTRUCTIONS OR ANY EDUCATION ABOUT TERRIBLE SIDE EFFECTS THIS MEDICATION CAN GIVE YOU.
DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT CAN I DO?

Dear Sun and Moon,

I take abilify, (and an antidepressant), and I take cogentin (benztropine mesylate) to control the side effects--I shake because of the abilify. With a different medication, I had tardive dyskinesia.

(Does the doctor say whether or not the medication should be taken with a meal? My doctors always encourage me to take my meds with a meal.)

Could you ask you son's doctor if he should take the abilify with food? I ask this because sometimes food diminishes the side effects of the medication.
