Seizures: Fluoxetine should be used with caution in patients with a history of convulsive disorders. The incidence of seizures associated with fluoxetine during clinical trials did not appear to differ from that reported with other marketed antidepressants; however, patients with a history of convulsive disorders were excluded from these trials.
Abilify may increase the risk of seizures. Before starting Abilify, tell your healthcare provider if you have epilepsy or a history of seizures.
On Sep, 5, 2013: 26,130 people reported to have side effects when taking Abilify.Among them, 8 people (0.03%) have Hallucination, Olfactory.

Interactions between your selected drugsfluoxetine ↔ aripiprazoleApplies to:Prozac (fluoxetine) and Abilify (aripiprazole)FLUoxetine may increase the blood levels and effects of ARIPiprazole.

Sleep paralysis is a phenomenon in which people, either when falling asleep or wakening, temporarily experience an inability to move. More formally, it is a transition state between wakefulness and rest characterized by complete muscle atonia (muscle weakness).
The parietal lobes are responsible for your bodily sensations. Focal seizures in this part of your brain cause strange physical feelings. A tingling or warm feeling down one side of your body is typical. These types of seizures are also known as ‘sensory’ seizures.

Partial seizures presenting as panic attacksPanic disorder and some partial seizures may have similar symptoms. Patients with epilepsy may have prodromal symptoms of tension, anxiety, and depression. Temporal lobe seizures commonly include affective symptoms, fear, and autonomic features, including changes in skin colour, blood pressure, and heart rate. In comparison, for panic attack to be diagnosed (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fourth edition) patients must have at least four of 13 symptoms, including physical symptoms (palpitations, sweating, trembling, sensation of breathlessness, chest pain, feeling of choking, nausea, faintness, chills or flushes, and paraesthesiae) and affective symptoms, including fear of losing control, fear of dying, and derealisation or depersonalisation. There is, therefore, considerable overlap of symptoms between the two disorders ...... videotaping has the advantage of recording a patient's behaviour during an attack,
Dr John Duncan is a neurologist and medical director of the National Society for Epilepsy.He said: "The key really is in the training and the use of videotape material has proven to be very useful over the years."Nowadays we're developing training programmes for both general physicians and specialist neurologists showing them whole ranges of videotapes showing them clips of epileptic seizures and episodes that are non-epileptic and teaching them to tell the difference between the two."
