Hello, my p-doc said I need to add Ablify together with my olanzapine, in order to control my weight gain.
I’ve been taken both at night for about 20 days. I find myself wake up in the early morning say 3am-4am and can’t get back to sleep again.
Do you people have similar experience with the dual p-meds together? Does the insomonia caused by Ablify? I don’t have sleep problem when I take olanzapine alone.
Yes I do wake up randomly in the night too I’m on abilify. But then I go back to sleep.
Why is he giving u both can’t they cut one out. It just feels like an unessescarily lot.
I had both when my doctor wanted me to transition from one to the other.
One is more sedating and one is more activating so I think they go good together
I’m on both right now, 10 mg of Abilify in the morning and 10 mg of Zyprexa at night
I’m not sure why he would give you those two for weight loss. Those usually cause weight gain. I gained 75 pounds on those when I took them.
Abilify has a unique black box warning that it can increase anger and aggressive behavior. And it certainly did for me.
It seemed both of them are neutral to my mood. I don’t have anger nor aggressive. But I have great difficulty to get up in the morning, although I go to bed at 11 at night. I didn’t gain more weight, nor did I lose significant amount of weight. It seems my weight is unchanged after 2 months of dual p-meds taken.
