Abilify Maintena Information:

Abilify Maintena (Aripiprazole) is an antipsychotic medicine that contains the active substance Aripiprazole. It is primarily used for the maintenance treatment of schizophrenia and bipolar I disorder in adults. Abilify Maintena may be used alone or with other medications. Aripiprazole attaches to receptors in the brain for two substances (neurotransmitters) called dopamine and serotonin, which is believed to play a role in schizophrenia, thus, helps normalize the activity of the brain, reducing psychotic symptoms and preventing them from returning. It is a second-line treatment after risperidone for people between ages 15 and 17 who are having an acute exacerbation or recurrence of psychosis or schizophrenia. It is an effective add-on treatment for depressive disorder as it helps to decrease extreme changes in mood and help you feel less agitated. Abilify Maintena is also an effective treatment for obsessive-compulsive disorder (that does not improve with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) alone).

Abilify Maintena Directions:

Ability Maintena is given as an intramuscular injection by a healthcare professional. The recommended starting and maintenance dose of Abilify Maintena is 400 mg monthly (no sooner than 26 days after the previous injection). For patients who have never taken aripiprazole, establish tolerability with oral aripiprazole before initiating treatment with Abilify Maintena. Due to the half-life of oral aripiprazole, it may take up to 2 weeks to fully assess tolerability. After the first Abilify Maintena injection, administer oral aripiprazole (10 mg to 20 mg) for 14 consecutive days to achieve therapeutic aripiprazole concentrations during initiation of therapy. For patients already stable on another oral antipsychotic (and known to tolerate aripiprazole), after the first Abilify Maintena injection, continue treatment with tablets for 14 consecutive days to maintain therapeutic antipsychotic concentrations during initiation of therapy. If there are adverse reactions with the 400 mg dosage, consider reducing the dosage to 300 mg once monthly.
