Aripiprazole is a prescription medicine used in the treatment of schizophrenia and mania. It can also be used to treat depression and bipolar disorders. It works by modulating the action of certain chemical messengers in the brain that affect thoughts.
Aripiprazole is used to treat certain mental/mood disorders (such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, Tourette’s syndrome, and irritability associated with autistic disorder). It may also be used in combination with other medications to treat depression. Aripiprazole is known as an antipsychotic drug (atypical type).
