Nothing specific : Non specific T wVes are common and do not mean much.

Talk to your doctor: The reason the study says, "nonspecific T-wave abnormality" is because the reader doesn't have enough information supplied to them by the referring provider so as to make a more SPECIFIC comment on what they're seeing...which is some sort of T-wave abnormality. Abnormalities can be due to NORMAL variants and therefore, of no consequence, or meaningful based on the clinical situation.

Be cautious.: Some second generation. Antipsychotic agents similar to Abilify (aripiprazole) can cause changes in Q-T intervals but Abilify (aripiprazole) has not been cited . The non- specific changes have to be monitored when taking these type of medications. You don't have to stop it.
