Aripiprazole Side Effects

Side effects of Aripiprazole include dizziness, headaches, nausea, diabetes, tardive dyskenesia, akathisia, heart disease, cardiac arrest, vomiting, etcetera. I have had dizziness, headaches, nausea, and tardive diskenesia. As a result of these side effects, I have decided to decrease Aripiprazole by 5 mg. every two months or so, depending on how I am feeling/doing. I will review how I am doing to decrease to 10 mg. a day (5 mg. a.m., 5 mg. p.m.) on June 1.

  • medication: 5 mg Aripiprazole a.m., 10 mg Aripiprazole before sleep
  • sleep: average 12 hrs
  • exercise: walked (farther than last week) every day but two, 20 situps, 10 pushups
  • diet: made certain to eat breakfast every day
  • weight: 154 lbs.
  • mood: ok all mornings upon rising
