Aripiprazole is used to treat certain mental/mood disorders (such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, Tourette's disorder, and irritability associated withautistic disorder). It may also be used in combination with other medication to treatdepression. Aripiprazole is known as an antipsychotic drug (atypical type).
Aripiprazole, sold under the brand name Abilify among others, is an atypical antipsychotic. It is primarily used in the treatment of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Other uses include as an add-on treatment in major depressive disorder, tic disorders, and irritability associated with autism. A Cochrane reviewfound evidence in schizophrenia not sufficient to determine effects on general functioning. Additionally, as many people dropped out of the medication trials before they were completed, the overall strength of the conclusions is low.
