Abilify Discmelt is used to treat various mental health conditions, including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and irritability associated with autism. Unlike regular tablets, Abilify Discmelt tablets are designed to dissolve quickly on the tongue, without the need for water.

Abilify Discmelt contains the active ingredient aripiprazole, which is classified as an atypical antipsychotic medication. It works to restore the balance of certain natural chemicals in the brain by binding to specific receptors, including dopamine and serotonin receptors. By balancing the levels of these chemicals in the brain, it helps to reduce the symptoms associated with certain mental disorders such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

Use and Dosage

Abilify Discmelt is a form of Dispersible Tablet that you should take by mouth with or without food, as directed by your doctor.The tablet is delicate and should not be cut, split, or broken before use. Only remove a tablet from its blister pack just before taking. Dry your hands, peel back the foil on the blister pack carefully to remove the tablet without pushing it through the foil. Place the tablet on your tongue, allow it to dissolve completely, and then swallow it with saliva. You do not need to use water to take Abilify Discmelt.

The recommended starting and target dose of Abilify Discmelt for adults with schizophrenia is 10 or 15 mg once daily, taken without regard to meals. However, the actual dosage may vary depending on the patient's medical condition, response to treatment, and other factors. Follow your doctor's instructions carefully when taking Abilify Discmelt. They may adjust your dosage over time to achieve the best treatment outcomes while minimizing the risk of side effects.

Do not increase your dosage or take this medication more often or longer than prescribed. Doing so does not speed up the healing process; instead, it increases the risk of encountering side effects.

It may take a few weeks before you experience the medication's full effect. To get the most out of it, use it regularly and at the same time each day. Keep taking Abilify Discmelt even if you start feeling better, and do not stop taking the medication without consulting your doctor first. Stopping the medication abruptly may make some conditions worse, and your doctor may want to gradually decrease your dosage instead.
