Medicines have benefits and some have risks. Always read the label and use only as directed. If symptoms persist or you have side effects see your health professional. Brands and generics both contain the same active ingredient(s) and are medically equivalent. Some brands are marketed under different names by the same manufacturer depending on the country of origin. Images are provided as a reference only, the received medicine may vary in packaging, color, pill shape, etc, from one batch to the next. For an item marked "generic" any quality brand may be sent, however you will always receive the active ingredients ordered in the strength(s) ordered.
Since its release in the late 1990s and early 2000s Abilify has seen tremendously widespread use around the world in treating a number of conditions, most notably:
Though less common, Abilify may also be used in other conditions, usually along with other medications.
Atypical antipsychotic treatments like Abilify are less likely to produce some side effects than typical antipsychotics, most significantly extrapyramidal symptoms. Extrapyramidal symptoms are movement and muscle control issues sometimes caused by typical antipsychotics, such as muscle spasms and rigidity. Atypical antipsychotics are also less likely to cause constipation.
The conditions Abilify treats are complex and often not fully understood from a medical perspective. Treating a complex mental condition is often further complicated when other medications are also being taken or other major medical conditions are present. For optimal results with Abilify it's important a doctor be involved in determining and adjusting dosage, ensuring the medication is working as intended, and monitoring for any developing side effects.
Abilify comes in several formulations; regular tablets, dispersible (dissolvable) tablets, and injections. Regular and dispersible tablets are essentially the same; the dispersible version is ideal for patients who have difficulty, or an aversion to, swallowing whole tablets. Injections are not interchangeable; the injectable formula has its own dosage scale. Injections are typically reserved for use in treating agitation in schizophrenia and bipolar mania episodes.
Standard dosage varies somewhat depending on the condition being treated, and will need to be adjusted if other medications are being taken. In otherwise healthy adults:
Abilify injections are very fast-acting; if taking tablets it will take up to a week for full effects to be seen. Because of this there should always be at least a week before benefit is evaluated and dosage adjustments made. Dosage adjustments are typically made in 5 mg increments.
Abilify tablets can be taken with or without food. Many patients find taking tablets with food reduces nausea. Regular tablets should not be split, crushed, or dissolved. Dispersible tablets can be dissolved in fluids or wet foods.
As with any medication, Abilify can cause side effects. If used properly side effects are usually mild and often stop occurring as the body adjusts to treatment. Patients with certain other medical conditions are more likely to encounter complications while using this medication; discuss risks with a doctor before use if there is a history of:
This product can interact with a wide range of other medications and, though not common, these interactions can produce potentially dangerous side effects. Speak with a doctor or pharmacist before mixing this or any other medications.
