Can I go through withdrawal symptoms if I immediately stop taking lithium 300mg and abilify 5mg both once per day? And if so, what are they?

Unlikely

Open-uri20120908-9653-1etq99v
I think it unlikely u would experience withdrawal by discontinuing 5 mg of Abilify and 300 mg of lithium. My biggest concern would be a return or worsening of whatever conditions these were intended to treat. Please speak to your doctor before stopping your meds.

Lunesta withdrawal Symptoms?

Rare

In clinical trials, patients that stopped lunesta typically did not have noticeable withdrawal symptoms, but anything is possible. Sometimes if you have gotten used to taking a sleep medication at night and you try to stop it, your body can have a little more difficulty in falling asleep without the help of the medication. You can try cutting the dose more slowly.

lupron withdrawal symptoms for male?

Not aware of any

Generally, stopping lupron just allows the whole hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis to start getting back to normal, with gradual increases in both testosterone and estrogen as the lupron wears off. In some people who have been on multiple courses of lupron, or have been on it for a long time, there may not be recovery, and the low testosterone and estrogen may be permanent.

Dr. Chris Esguerra answered:

Lithium carbonate worst side effects?

Thyroid and kidney

Thyroid
Lithium toxicity, thyroid effects, and kidney effects are probably the more severe side effects of lithium. It is best to work with your physician to monitor any side effects of lithium. Lithium is quite beneficial though for those with bipolar or if it is used as an adjunct to treat major depression.
