If You Had To Pick....

Which would you rather be:

1. Alive and Depressed?


2. Alive with these side effects?:
  • fever, stiff muscles, confusion, sweating, fast or uneven heartbeats;
  • jerky muscle movements you cannot control;
  • sudden numbness or weakness, headache, confusion, or problems with vision, speech, or balance;
  • fever, chills, body aches, flu symptoms, sores in your mouth and throat;
  • increased thirst or urination, loss of appetite, fruity breath odor, drowsiness, dry skin, nausea, and vomiting;
  • seizure (convulsions);
  • thoughts of hurting yourself;
  • feeling like you might pass out;
  • jaundice (yellowing of your skin or eyes); or
  • urinating less than usual or not at all.
Less serious side effects of aripiprazole may include:
  • choking or trouble swallowing;
  • dizziness, drowsiness, or weakness;
  • constipation, mild stomach upset;
  • headache, anxiety;
  • sleep problems (insomnia); or
  • weight gain.
(The side effects sound like an unending panic attack mixed with a hangover.)


3. Dead?

 I'll take depressed.

  1. I'm having at least eight of those symptoms right now. I thought it was meningitis but maybe someone is slipping me Abilify?
