That is a decision: Between you ; your doctor. The zoloft can make Abilify (aripiprazole) levels higher but you are talking about a relatively small dose of abilify (aripiprazole).

Could make sense: That could be a reasonable, effective, and safe combination for some people -- but only under careful supervision by a psychiatrist.

Can adrenal insufficiency cause mood swings accompanied by anxiety and pain in the chest?

Chest pain?: The mood swings and anxiety are very commonly associated with adrenal and thyroid problems while chest pain may accompany the anxiety, it needs to be evaluated separately to rule out other causes including those related to the heart, lungs or stomach.

I've been having acute bone pain from my right thumb to my shoulder and can't sleep, what could be causing this?

Nerve pressure: Symptoms could be due to degenerative disease of the neck with pressure on the nerves. Carpal tunnel syndrome would be a remote consideration although symptoms not typical. If any numbness or tingling is present this would be consistent with nerve impingement.

A 33-year-old member asked:
My 20m old has an ear infection and is on antibiotics. Non stop sneezing today and when he lies down to sleep he is gagging? What should I do?

Symptom care: Most of your issues are likely a viral cold with a secondary ear infection. The antibiotics very likely won't touch the cold symptoms. So symptom care is the only thing you can do. I have found that nose suctioning makes kids more angry than anything. However, taking the kid into a shower with you, as steamy as an be, for 10-15 minutes can help the snot flow out so they feel better and sleep bett.

Why am I realy hot sometimes?I have bad stomach pains, really sleepy, dizzy, and moody? I'm on the IUD but think I might be pregnant? Can u help?

IUD: Iud can do that, especially the hormonal one (mirena). Chance of pregnancy is negligible with iud use, but if in doubt, you can do a home pregnancy test. There may be other reasons for you feeling like that, though. You should probably talk to you medical provider.

A 40-year-old member asked:
Did I experience sleep paralysis? Arm was numb and pins and needles.

No: You probably slept on your arm causing diminished blood flow in the arm and the ensuing numbness and tingling.
Stay on it long enough and you'll lose some motor function also until the blood flow returns.
