    Abilify Dosage

    Abilify is usually taken once a day by mouth with or without food. The tablets are intended to be swallowed whole with water. If you are unable to swallow the tablets, call your doctor or pharmacist to see if you can crush, chew or split the tablets. You may need to begin treatment with a smaller dose to avoid side effects of aripiprazole.

    Your dose will depend on your condition and history of treatment. You may be provided with special instructions if you are taking other medications to manage your symptoms.

    Do not take extra doses expecting faster treatment. It may increase your risk of side effects and will not improve your condition. If you miss a dose, you can take it when you remember. You can skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next dose.

    Abilify works best when used properly and consistently every day. It may take weeks to see the maximum result of treatment.

    Advise your doctor if you are concerned the medicine is not working. You should keep taking it when your symptoms diminish. They may return if you stop treatment early.
