Resolved Question:

My daughter is on5 mg of abilify. I can tell her mood is more stable. she has always had alot of anxiety, but now she complains that if feels like her heart "tickels" she has racing thoughts and is unable to sit still. These syptoms are helped by taking 1 mg of ativan. She thinks the tickeling feeling in her chest is from the abilify. Could it be?

I have looked up the detailed side-effect list for abilify. Palpatations (which would produce a tickling feeling in the chest) s NOT listd as a side effect.

She needs t see an MD to determine why she is getting this feeling.
