Abilify 

Indication

Abilify (Aripiprazole) belongs to the group of medications known as antipsychotics. It is used to treat Schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Abilify (Aripiprazole) may also be used in addition to other medications to treat major depressive disorder for adults who have not had enough of a response from previous treatments.

Abilify (Aripiprazole) does not cure these medical conditions, but helps to manage symptoms by affecting the actions of certain chemical messengers in the brain.

Abilify (Aripiprazole) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Abilify (Aripiprazole) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Abilify (Aripiprazole) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Abilify (Aripiprazole) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Abilify (Aripiprazole), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Abilify (Aripiprazole) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Abilify (Aripiprazole) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Abilify (Aripiprazole) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Abilify 

Dosage

For schizophrenia, the recommended adult dose is 10 mg or 15 mg taken once a day, with or without food. Some people may require higher doses. If your doctor decides that a higher dose is needed, increases should only be made after 2 weeks. The maximum daily dose is 30 mg daily.

The recommended starting dose for adolescents (15 to 17 years) to treat schizophrenia is 2 mg daily, gradually increased to 10 mg daily, taken once a day.

For bipolar disorder, the recommended initial dose for adults is 15 mg daily with or without food. Based on response, the dose can be increased to a maximum of 30 mg daily.

The recommended starting dose for adolescents (13 to 17 years) to treat bipolar disorder is 2 mg daily, gradually increased to 10 mg daily, taken once a day.

For major depressive disorder, the recommended starting dose for adults is 2 mg to 5 mg taken once a day. Gradual increases in the dose can be made only after 1 week. The maximum dose is 15 mg daily.

Swallow the tablets whole with water.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important that Abilify (Aripiprazole) be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Abilify (Aripiprazole) at room temperature and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Abilify (Aripiprazole) may be used by adolescents 15 years and older to treat schizophrenia. It may also be used by adolescents 13 years and older to treat bipolar disorder. The use of Abilify (Aripiprazole) to aid in the treatment of depression has not been studied for this age group and is therefore, not recommended. Movement disorders such as tardive dyskinesia are more likely to occur for this age group. Report any unusual body movements to your doctor as soon as possible.
