Frequently asked questions about aripiprazole

What is aripiprazole?

Aripiprazole is a prescription medication used for the treatment of schizophrenia symptoms. It is also prescribed as a treatment for mental conditions such as bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder, and irritability symptoms in children with autistic disorder and Tourette’s syndrome.

When used as a treatment for bipolar disorder, depression, autism symptoms, and Tourette’s syndrome symptoms, aripiprazole is often prescribed in conjunction with other forms of medication.

What is aripiprazole used to treat?

Aripiprazole is prescribed as a treatment for symptoms caused by various mental disorders and conditions. Aripiprazole cannot cure conditions such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or depression, but it can help patients manage them by reducing certain symptoms.

Schizophrenia is a chronic mental disorder that affects an individual’s ability to think, feel, and behave. Individuals who have been diagnosed with schizophrenia may experience symptoms such as delusions, hallucinations, illogical thoughts or behaviors, and abnormal movement behavior. Cognition may be affected by this disease, leading to problems with attention, memory, and concentration.

There is no common cause of schizophrenia. It is thought that genetics, environment, and life stressors may play a role in the development of this condition. While it cannot be cured, schizophrenia can be managed through medication, therapy, and support.

Bipolar disorder is a mood disorder that causes periods of mood swings that range from depression to manic highs. Patients often need help to manage periods of mania, which can be characterized as episodes of a frenzied, hyperactive, or irritated mood. Mania is commonly followed by depressive episodes that can intense feelings of sadness, isolation, hopelessness, and suicidal thoughts.

Depression, also known as major depressive disorder or clinical depression, is a type of mood disorder that negatively affects how you think, behave, and feel. Untreated depression can lead to a range of emotional and physical issues. Depression can be caused by other mental conditions, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Symptoms of depression can make it difficult to carry out day-to-day tasks and maintain personal relationships.

How does aripiprazole work?

Aripiprazole belongs to a classification of medications known as antipsychotic agents. Antipsychotics work by blocking certain dopamine receptors in the brain. By blocking these receptors, antipsychotics slow brain activity. This action can minimize psychotic symptoms caused by schizophrenia, depression, and bipolar disorder.

It’s important to note that aripiprazole is not a cure for schizophrenia, depression, autism, Tourette’s syndrome, or bipolar disorder. These are chronic conditions that require treatment over the course of a lifetime. Aripiprazole is prescribed to reduce symptoms of these disorders, making it easier to manage them.

What are the most common side effects of aripiprazole?

WARNING: SUICIDAL THOUGHTS AND BEHAVIORS

Antipsychotic medication used for the treatment of psychotic and behavior disorders may increase the risk of suicidal thoughts and behavior. Antipsychotic medication, such as aripiprazole, may change mental health conditions (such as mood and behavior) in unexpected ways. Talk to your doctor if you are experiencing suicidal thoughts or other sudden changes in your mental health. Before starting treatment with aripiprazole, or any other antidepressant, discuss the risks and benefits of the medication with your doctor.

Common side effects reported while taking aripiprazole include:
- Headache
- Anxiety/ Restlessness

This is not a complete list of adverse reactions.

Talk to a health care provider right away if you begin noticing severe mood changes or suicidal thoughts or behaviors. In addition, seek immediate medical attention if you experience difficulty breathing, seizures, skin rash, swelling, or changes in your heartbeat while taking aripiprazole.

As with all prescription medication, be sure to inform the prescribing doctor about any medical conditions you have been previously diagnosed with, as well as any medication/ supplements you are currently taking before taking aripiprazole. Aripiprazole can interact with other forms of medication, causing potentially serious side effects. In addition, let your doctor know if you are pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant before starting treatment with aripiprazole.

What is the typical starting dose of aripiprazole?

Aripiprazole is commonly supplied as an oral tablet. The specific dosage of medication prescribed will depend on the age of the patient and the condition requiring treatment.

Do not crush or chew aripiprazole tablets. Swallow the medication whole with a glass of water. You can take this medication with or without food.

Take the medication exactly as prescribed, and inform your doctor if you begin to experience any side effects while taking the medication. If you begin to experience suicidal thoughts or any sudden changes in mood or behavior, talk to a health care provider right away.
