Antidepressants may increase suicidal thoughts or behaviors in some children, teenagers, and young adults, especially within the first few months of treatment or when the dose is changed. Depression and other serious mental illnesses are themselves associated with an increase in the risk of suicide. Patients on antidepressants and their families or caregivers should watch for new or worsening depression symptoms, unusual changes in behavior, or thoughts of suicide. Such symptoms should be reported to the patient's healthcare provider right away, especially if they are severe or occur suddenly. ABILIFY®(aripiprazole) is not approved for use in pediatric patients with depression. See More Safety Information

About ABILIFY

Starting on ABILIFY

It is important to take ABILIFY (aripiprazole) exactly as directed by your doctor. Even if you start to feel better, it's important not to change your dose without talking to your doctor. You should also keep your doctor informed about any changes in your depressive symptoms.

Following the steps below may help you get more out of your treatment.

1. What to do if you miss a dose

If you miss a dose, take your ABILIFY (aripiprazole) as soon as you remember. However, if it's almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose. If you miss several doses, talk to your doctor right away.

2. Give yourself time to adjust

Everyone reacts to medication differently, and your body may need time to adapt. If you have questions about the adjustment period, you should talk to your doctor before making changes to your routine or stopping the medication.

3. Share your progress with your doctor

You should also keep your doctor informed of how you're feeling. If you don't already, keep a journal to record how you're feeling each day so you can compare it to how you felt before adding ABILIFY (aripiprazole). Be sure to share your results with your doctor. This way, your doctor will better understand what effect your treatment is having and be able to adjust it if necessary.
