Hello everyone, My psychiatrist has prescribed a low dose of Abilify 2-3 mg, unfortunately Abilify's lowest available dose in pill form is 5mg so i have to use a pill cutter which is frustrating!!! My psychiatrist did prescribe the oral solution, however my GP refused to give me a script for the oral solution because the price was slightly higher, but I will see my GP again about this and persuade him to switch me to the oral solution. In the meantime I am using a pill cutter so I am taking 2.5mg. I have had a blood test today BEFORE starting Abilify and I will have the same blood test again in 2 weeks time to see if there are any changes, particularly looking at blood glucose and cholesterol levels I will measure my blood pressure and compare it to before starting Abilify I will weigh myself daily to see if there is a weight increase and I will notify you of any changes in appetite I will be updating this thread 13:34 10/06/2016 I can't give you an accurate description. Feeling more energetic, awake and upbeat but this is probably placebo effect and there is mediating factors (I received good news a few days ago) 12:07 11/06/2016 quiet nauseous, feeling slightly hot, for example feel hot but if someone else touched my head or cheeks they wouldn't feel it? so it's like inner heat? Reminding you I'm also on Vyvanse and Cymbalta. Hasn't really made me agitated or pace around or motivated. I haven't weighed myself. I will weigh myself in a week's time. 20:32 12/06/2016 I did weigh myself today (I was curious and got a little carried away) and I actually didn't gain any weight. I haven't taken my Abilify pill yet because I'm going to try taking it at night time to see if it helps me sleep. 12:58 16/06/2016 Sorry I did not update my diary for a few days. I have been feeling a bit more stable and motivated and positive and I don't know if this is just placebo!!!! There has been no weight gain as far as I'm concerned. No appetite increase. I had a blood test on 10/06/2016 and I just got the results and now I am going to schedule to have the same blood test to compare the results. Here are the results from my blood test http://imgur.com/3C3vGIK I will keep this diary going
Do any of you write or blog about your disorders online? I have a blot on tumblr, http://warpedfamily.tumblr.com/ but am hesitant to actually talk about my disorders and issues, even if it would be therapeutic.If any of you do blog about it, do you ever feel worried people will react negatively towards it? And feel free to share links to your blogs if you want, I'm always looking for something to read and it's nice to relate to people.
