Abilify

Evening of Tuesday, 2/9/16, took 2.5 mg Abilify.

Wednesday, 2/10/16: Went to therapy, but otherwise slept most of the day due to excessive drowsiness. Also experienced occasional nausea and headache, though the headache responded well to Tylenol. Took 2.5 mg Abilify again at night.

Thursday, 2/11/16: Went to writing group in the morning, but otherwise slept most of the day due to excessive drowsiness. Also experienced occasional nausea and headache, though the headache responded well to Tylenol. Took 2.5 mg Abilify again at night.

Friday, 2/12/16: Extreme nausea all day, accompanied by continued drowsiness. Talked to Dr. Fisher's fill-in crew (as he is on vacation for a few days) and they advised that I not take the Abilify the night and see how I was feeling the next day.

Saturday, 2/13/16: Still having lots of drowsiness and nausea, though not as bad as on Friday. Talked again with nurse, who advised I wait another night, taking no Abilify, then take 1.25 mg (1/4 pill) on Sunday night.

Sunday, 2/14/16: Not a fun Valentine's Day, as drowsiness and nausea still plague me here and there. We'll see what happens, though, when I take 1/4 pill tonight. I worry that I'll be sicker again tomorrow as a result.
