Worth noting: "These impulse-control problems are rare".

Seriously.....

Are you going to post EVERY new possible side effect recognized by pharmaceutical manufacturers?

Here's another one...

What are the risks of taking grape seed extract?

Side effects. Grape seed extract is generally considered safe. Side effects may include headache, itchy scalp, dizziness, and nausea.


Grape Seed Extract: Benefits and Side Effects

Personally I'd rather have the compulsive gambling and not the itchy scalp but thats just me..

lol -- I have NOT had any of the possible s/e for grape seed ex...thank you.

Not enough time and energy to list all drug side effects, so No to your question.

But an old bf died after being on viagra during clinical trials. Makes me wonder how many men have died from this drug. Maybe someone has some stats on that one.

On the Abilify, I didn't search that out, a friend on another health group brought this one to our attention. I have not met a drug yet that does not come with a long list of possible side effects and many many end up with them, or at least one....for me desiccated thyroid drug gave me on side effects that I can "feel" since on it since 2002.

Amolodopine gave me edema after 30 days on it, grape seed extract up dosing got rid of edema. Atenolol causes fatigue...all BP cause fatigue.

Advil, the verdict is still out, hoping DGL is protecting my stomach.

Side effects are possible, not probable.

EVERYTHING in the world has side effects to varying degrees.

Personally, I would prefer if you would abstain from the urge (are you taking Abilify?!!) from posting all of this.

I'm an adult, I read about medication before putting it in my mouth. I don't need to know about medications I don't take.

I get a rash from mango skins, but I'm not going to go posting that side effect everywhere.

I don't take Abilify, but many do I would think, it's all over the tv most evenings.

If a post doesn't interest me, I don't read it and certainly don't comment.

I thought the information about Abilify was useful. My dad takes it and he can no longer really tell us how he's feeling because of dementia, so we have to guess by observing his behavior. He's not able to do any of the compulsive behaviors listed anymore except eating, which he doesn't do. He has been walking nonstop for the last year, other than when he's sleeping, and I wonder if that could be a compulsive behavior caused by his Abilify...something to ask his psychiatrist about, I guess.

Glad you found the info helpful...maybe others will too.
