What should you do if you use too much aripiprazole?


Call your doctor right away or seek immediate medical attention if your symptoms do not improve or they become worse after using aripiprazole. You can also call 800-222-1222 to reach the American Association of Poison Control Centers or use its online resource if you think you’ve used too much aripiprazole. But if you have severe symptoms, call 911 (or your local emergency number) immediately or go to the nearest emergency room.


If you think it is an emergency, call 999 or find your nearest A&E
If you need help now, but it’s not an emergency go to 111.nhs.uk or call 111. Alternatively you can speak to one of our pharmacists or use the Now Patient app to make an appointment with your GP.

What should I do if I miss my dose?

There are occasions when people forget to take their medication at correct prescribed times. This may not only have an effect on potentially making the medication less effective but it may also inadvertently lead to taking doses too close together, thereby increasing the risks of side effects.

How does aripiprazole work?

Aripiprazole is an antipsychotic medication that works by affecting brain chemicals. Specifically, it acts on dopamine and serotonin receptors in the brain to help regulate neurotransmitter activity. By modulating these neurotransmitters, aripiprazole can help improve symptoms associated with mental health conditions such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

Forms of aripiprazole available

Aripiprazole is available in various forms, including oral tablets, orally disintegrating tablets, and oral solutions.

Dosage of aripiprazole

The dosage of aripiprazole varies depending on the condition being treated and individual patient factors. It is important to follow the prescribed dosage instructions provided by the healthcare provider. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Take your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.

Directions for aripiprazole use

Aripiprazole should be taken exactly as prescribed by the healthcare provider. The tablets should be swallowed whole with water, and the orally disintegrating tablets should be placed on the tongue and allowed to dissolve. Store the tablet and the oral liquid at room temperature away from light and moisture. Discard the oral solution 6 months after opening or after the expiration date.

Warnings and precautions for aripiprazole

  • Aripiprazole may increase the risk of suicidal thoughts and behaviors, especially in children, adolescents, and young adults. If you or someone you know experiences a sudden worsening of depression, unusual changes in mood or behavior, or thoughts of self-harm, it is crucial to seek immediate medical attention
  • Aripiprazole may cause a condition called neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS), which is a rare but serious reaction to antipsychotic medications. Symptoms of NMS include fever, stiff muscles, confusion, irregular heartbeat, and changes in blood pressure. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to contact your healthcare provider right away

Aripiprazole may interact with certain medications, including antidepressants, antipsychotics, and medications that affect the activity of certain liver enzymes. It is important to inform the healthcare provider about all prescription medications, over-the-counter medications and supplements being taken to avoid drug interactions.

The use of aripiprazole during pregnancy should be carefully considered and discussed with a healthcare provider. The potential risks and benefits should be weighed, and alternative treatment options should be explored.

Use of aripiprazole in breastfeeding
