Abilify Drug Information
If you have bipolar disorder, autism, or schizophrenia, your healthcare provider may prescribe the antipsychotic medication Abilify® (aripiprazole) to help control your symptoms. The drug can also be used along with antidepressants for the treatment of depression.
In order to help minimize risks and to ensure safe treatment with Abilify, drug information should be discussed with your healthcare provider ahead of time. Before you start taking this medicine, you should let your healthcare provider know if you have diabetes, Alzheimer's disease (or other forms of dementia), low blood pressure, or heart disease. You should also tell him or her about all other medications you are taking, in order to help prevent drug interactions.
Abilify comes in tablet form and is taken by mouth, typically once a day. For people who have difficulty swallowing tablets whole, the medication is also available in the form of orally disintegrating tablets and a liquid.
