Meds causing tongue to swell

My boyfriend has what he describes as his tongue swelling when he hasn’t been taking his meds. Sometimes it happens when he has been taking them though. I’m not sure that it actually swells, but I can tell the difference when he talks. Has anyone else had this problem, and can you tell me what causes it?

That doesn’t sound healthy. What if his tongue swells so he can’t breathe in the worst case scenario? I’d definitely mention it to the doctor prescribing the meds (psychiatrist)

sounds like he should see a doctor about that.

He made it to the Dr. and was told it was from his Abilify when he forgets to take it.
