Customer Question
My wife accidently took...

My wife accidently took one of my son's abilify tablets this morning (7am) and has been with nausea and vomit off and on all day. Even ice chip induces vomiting.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

She has not yet

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

My son takes 1/2 of 15 MG aripiprazole tab and she accidently took in instead of her water pill.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

She takes a water pill for ear ringing and a low dose pravastatin k

Nausea and vomiting are side effects of Abilify, however, with just half of a 15 mg pill nausea and vomiting occurring over such a long time does not make sense.

I would suggest that you take her to the Urgent Care or the ER for medical attention, as the nausea and the vomiting could be due to some other cause and can fast dehydrate her or cause electrolyte derangement.

Hope this helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
