Type of medicine An antipsychotic medicine Used for Schizophrenia; mania Also called Abilify® Available as Tablets, melt-in-the-mouth (orodispersible) tablets, oral liquid medicine, and injection Aripiprazole belongs to a group of medicines called antipsychotics. It will have been prescribed for one of two different mood disorders. You may have been prescribed it to relieve the symptoms of schizophrenia. Alternatively, it will have been prescribed for the treatment and/or prevention of high mood swings, a condition called mania. In both of these conditions, aripiprazole works on the balance of chemical substances in your brain.Before you start the treatment, read the manufacturer's printed information leaflet from inside the pack. It will give you more information about aripiprazole and it will also provide you with a full list of the side-effects which you may experience from taking it. The recommended dose for adults is 15 mg once daily. Your dose, however, may be adjusted to suit your condition, so take aripiprazole exactly as your doctor tells you to. The directions for taking your doses will be printed on the label of the pack to remind you about what the doctor said to you. You can take aripiprazole either before or after meals. Try to get into the habit of taking your doses at the same time of day each day, as this will help you to remember to take it. If you do forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If you do not remember until the following day, skip the missed dose. Do not take two doses at the same time to make up for a forgotten dose.Aripiprazole tablets should generally be taken swallowed whole with a drink of water. However, if you have been given Abilify® orodispersible tablets (these are tablets which dissolve in your mouth), peel open the packaging, remove the tablet from the blister and place it on your tongue to dissolve. Alternatively if you prefer, you can take the orodispersible tablet stirred into a small glassful of water. If you have been given Abilify® oral solution liquid medicine, you must take this undiluted. Measure your dose out carefully using the cup or dropper supplied in the pack. If you are in any way unsure about measuring out your dose, you can ask your local pharmacist to show you what to do.Your treatment will require careful monitoring to make sure that you get the best possible benefit from aripiprazoleCan aripiprazole cause problems?Common aripiprazole side-effects (these affect less than 1 in 10 people) What can I do if I experience this?
