Tarditive dyskinsia won't help you get laid =)

In reply to abilify for social anxiety?, posted by jonh kimble on January 11, 2003, at 20:52:06

> this abilify sounds rather interesting. apparently it can have pro dopaminergic effects at low doses, which is just what I need. Anybody found it effective for sociability, negative thinking, depression etc... Thanks

I'm not sure the severity of your social anxiety, or if you have an accompanying psychosis or anxiety psychosis, but Abilify is something to be cautious over if you do not have these disorders.

If you do not have psychosis or anxiety psychosis or some very rare, debiliating form of social anxiety in which no drugs available have succeeded and you are not able to leave your house ever as a result, then, maybe, with exercised caution and a willingness to tolerate the 4% probabability you will have tarditive dyskinsia, and won't care if you're flapping your arms and legs uncontrolablly at some point in the future for the rest of your life, then yes, maybe, the dopaminergic effects sound interesting.

Otherwise, they sound like hell to me, and I'm happy to take the Klonopin and chill. Heck, it's not even likely (or at least established) it'll work so well on social anxiety anyhow.

And dopaminergic effect might sound cool, but it's still poking at the same part of your brain that a drill would during a lobotomy, so watch out. Side effects are anything but clean, and 4% is a rather large probabability when you consider it'll leave you looking like a monkey with Tourtette's for the rest of your life if you get it. And by then you'll be wishing social isolation was your being problem.
