Olanzapine: passing out in middle of the night, grabbing and stretching her face, swollen, puffy lips, red “eyeliner” look, extremely pale even though she was in the pool daily.
Abilify: 2 days in- hiccups. First bout was yesterday afternoon for about 3 hours then again in the middle of the night while she was sound asleep for about 2 hours, then another round this morning for about 45 minutes. Also slobbering- lots of saliva in her mouth. Her face is looking a little bit puffy especially around her lips and she’s looking a little pale.
Can y’all share some of the weird side effects your loved ones (or yourself) had experienced on these AP drugs? Up until we started her on Abilify yesterday she was receiving around 1000mg of CBD. It was keeping her calm and agitation was down from around an 8/10 to 3/10. But we were and are still dealing with bazaar delusions and noon stop talking. We’ve cut CBD down to around 300ish mg to introduce Abilify 1/2 tablet supposedly over next 4 days. Called psychiatrist about side effects and awaiting further instructions. The nurse said she’d probably have her stop Abilify and we’d try something else. If the delusions don’t go away on Rx I suppose well just bite the bullet and keep her on the CBD which had NO side effects-to my knowledge and kept her calm. I just hate that’s it’s SO expensive.
