crywolf2010 Posted September 29, 2011 Share Posted September 29, 2011 i went on ablify as soon as it came out ' thinking ' yes something to fix my schiz. anyway after 2 or 3 days i got the most horrid akathisia ever! i could not stop moving. moving didnt relieve the extreme restlessness in my whole body. pdoc had to take me off it. took ONE WEEK to get out of my system. that was about 10 years ago when i tried abilify and now we ' know ' that horrid side effect from it. now i know why pdocs are hesitant to use drugs that came out 2 days ago. just wondering when did it become common knowledge that abilify is the king of causing akathisia? in future ill always be cautious about trying shiny new antipsychotics coz basically how do u know what sort of side effects they ' can ' cause. abilify is just one example. another example is when clozaril first came out in the 1970's a few ppl died coz their white blood count dropped and at the time blood tests weren't required for it. then it was discovered it can cause agranul... then taken off the market by the drug company. and came back in 1990. pdocs are now familar with cloz. its been around longer than any other atypical. the side effects are well known and no more suprises..? no one really knows the long term effect of aap's yet.... coz they are so new!
