Take exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label.

Do not take aripiprazole for longer than 6 weeks unless your doctor has told you to.

Aripiprazole can be taken with or without food.

Measure liquid medicine with a special dose measuring spoon or medicine cup, not with a regular table spoon. If you do not have a dose measuring device, ask your pharmacist for one.

To take aripiprazole orally disintegrating tablets

Keep the tablet in its blister pack until you are ready to take it. Open the package and peel back the foil from the tablet blister. Do not push a tablet through the foil or you may damage the tablet.

Using dry hands, remove the tablet and place it in your mouth. It will begin to dissolve right away.

Do not swallow the tablet whole. Allow it to dissolve in your mouth without chewing.

Swallow several times as the tablet dissolves. If desired, you may drink liquid to help swallow the dissolved tablet.

Use aripiprazole regularly to get the most benefit. Get your prescription refilled before you run out of medicine completely.

Your doctor will need to check your progress on a regular basis. Do not miss any scheduled appointments.

Store aripiprazole tablets at room temperature away from moisture and heat.

Aripiprazole liquid should be stored in the refrigerator and can be used for up to 6 months after opening.
