just was put on Ability and not liking the side effects, especially the migraine headaches behind the eyes. Not a pleasant feeling. I've wbeen on a lot of major antidepressants and they did nothing for me. The MDs would put you on whatever they felt you have, not necessary what is the problem. I don't believe meds is the answer to everything. It took over 1 year to wean myself off of a psychpdependency to Ambien CR and that was prescribed by a doc in a box, the clinic doc who didn't care if he screwed up my life for over 1 year. They throw meds at you until something sticks.

sorry, the drug is ABILIFY, not Ability. My error.

Abilify is just very strong drug. One should never use psychiatric antipsychotic or antidepressant drugs. Psychiatric drugs simply means reduced life-expetancy and death, suicide is very common. Abilify maybe mildly better than older drugs like zyprexa but I doubt it.

I take Effesor & Wellbutrin. I have Chronic Major Deppresion. My doctor prescribed Abilify. OH MY GOD it was the absolute WORST medication I've ever taken. I took it and just flipped out. I felt so uncomfortable, the headache I had was so bad I thought any minute my head was going to spin off into flames. I had vertigo, threw up enough to wash an elephant & to top it off I had a world class anxiety attack. The next day I thought my doctor must have been on crack when he ordered this awful medication for me. There are no words to describe the hell of Abilify.

Discharged waste from anti depressants and other mind drugs along with other mind effecting drugs like Statin drugs should be suspected in underground water or city purified water. Purified plant water chlorinated, filtered does not remove all chemical residue from drugs discharged to ground water that is used for bathing or drinking. The more people in a given area pharmacutically drugged the more effects on the general public.

No one knows a drug's side effects like the person taking it. Use this website
to inform yourself on the drugs you are being prescribed. Take the next step and
report any side effects you are experiencing to...

•Receive your free RxISK Report to take to your doctor or pharmacist.

Took 2.5 mg Abilify as prescribed by my MD to help with the 40 mg Prozac I've been taking for 4 months. Abilify made me feel so sick, could hardly get out of bed, nauseous and dizzy. Today is the day after the 2.5 mg and I am still extremely dizzy, like something is spinning in my head. Lord, this is an aweful feeling. Taking them back to pharmacy!!! Wonder how long before its out of my body! Makes me want to quit all pills, ugh!

I took Klonopin and Paxil for 15 years to treat my anxiety disorder. I had to detox from the Klonopin this past spring. I got off the Klonopin and switched my Paxil to Lexapro (sex side effect issue). I am also a recovering alcoholic. My doctor did not want me on Benzo's anymore (says it increased alcohol cravings). I stayed on Lexapro only for 9 months, but my anxiety came back strong on just the Lexapro alone. I almost resorted to taking Xanax before I switched doctors. My new doc gave Zyprexa from http://z-olanzapine.com a chance. I am on my 7th day and I haven't felt this "normal" in 5 years. I take 5mgs at night and it has ended the "chatter" in my head, and removed my anxiety. Great medicine so far.

I ordered from edmedrx.com for the first time and i definitely will again. Customer service is great! I inquired about my order as i had the wrong zip code on my mailing address and their customer support helped me right away. They were very helpful and also when you have any questions, they email you right back with answers. I would recommend them highly as they deliver what they promise!

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://z-olanzapine.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.

Abilify is not very good for you. Only low doses like 5mg might make sense temporarily.

Zyprexa might be a safer drug.

Serotonergic drugs are not very good for you.
