AnswerOur experiences would lead me to say "I wouldn't recommend it... especially for children." Here's why: My then 11 yr. old son was taking Focalin (no complaints abt. the focalin) & Abilify (OMG!) for about a year. The Dr. dropped the Focalin but kept the Abilify. During that year, he was urinating on himself during the day w/o realizing it (2-3 times a day sometimes!) & bed-wetting. He was subjected to tests, ultrasounds, and had been subjected to an unnecessary surgery. All they needed was to simply test my son's blood sugar to find out it was astronomically high! Within 2-3 wks. of removing the Abilify, he'd quit wetting himself. Then he was given Strattera, which lasted less than 2 wks., due to my son waking one night complaining of chest pains. His heart was racing & blood pressure escalated so I rushed him to the E.R. where we were told to discontinue the meds immediately. So, please watch your child carefully and DEMAND that the prescribing physician tests your child's blood sugar levels & liver (while taking abilify) at least every 6 mths. Please be careful!

Can you take Adderall and abilify together?

I take Abilify and Adderall.....they seem to work good together. I suffer from both bipolar and ADD Yes i suffer from bipolar disorder and adhd as well and I take both adderall and abilify. Abilify is a partial agonist of the d2 dopamine receptor subtype which basically means when there is too little dopamine it'll trigger the receptor itself but if there is too much it'll block the dopamine from over stimulating that specific receptor. Adderall works by increasing the amount of dopamine in the brain but the dopamine receptor most tied to adhd is the d4 receptor which abilify has only minimal affinity for. You should talk to your psychiatrist further and you might want to use a drug interaction checker like the one at

My niece is taking 15mg of Abilify and 40mg of Strattera. What we are wondering do these drugs have a severe side effect when taken together? She has mentioned she feels funny when she takes the abilify and she is no getting overcome with the fear of dying while on these drugs. She states her heart speeds up when she takes the drugs together, and we noticed she has nervous twitches in herfacial muscle and with her hands. We are taking her to a new doctor for revaluation, but just thought I would ask and see if any one else is experiencing this problem.....Thank You David (canndav2001@yahoo)
