I am afraid of becoming impulsive and compulsive again. The FDA and Health Canada put a warning box on Abilify bottles about addictions and hypersexuality. It gave me addiction and hypersexuality issues.
My psychiatrist and family don’t want to. I had a life while on Abilify but it got shitty with time, I can stop it when it gets shitty. And idk if having a shitty life is better than having no life.
“The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning that compulsive or uncontrollable urges to gamble, binge eat, shop, and have sex have been reported with the use of the antipsychotic drug aripiprazole (Abilify, Abilify Maintena, Aristada, and generics). These uncontrollable urges were reported to have stopped when the medicine was discontinued or the dose was reduced. These impulse-control problems are rare, but they may result in harm to the patient and others if not recognized.”
Now my Dr doesn’t want to prescribe Abilify, not even Rexulti. He says even the lowest dose can cause impulsions. My only hope is Vraylar, I really want Vraylar and think its the perfect med for me. Did you try Vraylar?
