Can i take two pills aripiprazole instead of one pill clozapine and one aripiprazole to cope with the symptms?

Possibly: Balancing medications is not always easy. To do so well one must know the medications and the medical condition of the patient. The doctor who is prescribing these medications is in the best position to discuss this with you in a knowing manner. Please contact him/her. ...Read more

Is there a difference in taking abilify (aripiprazole) and seroquel, one pill in the morning and another pill at night for both, between taking them as a single dose of 2 pills together all at night ?

Is there a difference in taking abilify (aripiprazole) and seroquel, one pill in the morning and another pill at night for both, between taking them as a single dose of 2 pills together all at night ?

Yes!: These are in the same class but they are NOT interchangeable! You cannot safely pick the dose and timing of either. Work closely w/ the prescribing doctor who is exploring fairly new terrain to find the best way to help you. Don't do it alone - it can be very risky! ...Read more

I want to know the difference of mechanisms in this drugs: aripiprazole 15 mg, and quetiapine 5 mg (1/2 of pill). I have a bipolar disorder.

Close but not cigar: Independently of their dosages, they are both atypical antipsychotics. They share similar properties as antipsychotics and mood stabilizers . What's different is their side effect profile, life time, tolerance, etc.. Seriquel is more edating and increases appetite. Abilify (aripiprazole) can be more activating, less weight gain . ...Read more

Geodon (ziprasidone) depression: Geodon (ziprasidone) was tested for use as an augmenting agent and it failed the clinical trial. Have your doctor tell the insurance company that Geodon (ziprasidone) is not approved for that use. Abilify is approved. Best wishes. Btw, they cannot make you use an unapproved medication for any given condition ...Read more

3000 mg of niacin with 3000 mg vitaminc are able to cure bipolar disorder. If I do this and take the half pill of 10 mg abilify, (aripiprazole) would it be a good start?

3000 mg of niacin with 3000 mg vitaminc are able to cure bipolar disorder. If I do this and take the half pill of 10 mg abilify, (aripiprazole) would it be a good start?

Not so simple: Each person is an individual & there are no easy cures for bipolar. Niacin will help many but not all & should be started slowly as it causes flushing. Many with bipolar have pyoluria- see http://www.Primalbody-primalmind.Com/?P=398 i also recommend the books natural healing for bipolar disorder & natural medicine guide to bipolar disorder. Please find a good doctor to work with as well. ...Read more

How does Abilify (aripiprazole) work?

How does Abilify (aripiprazole) work?

Good Question: The exact mechanism by which Abilify (aripiprazole) (generic aripiprizole) works is unknown. We know that Abilify (aripiprazole) selectively binds different receptors based upon dose. At low doses it treats depression by binding serotonin. At high doses it treats schizophrenia by binding dopamine. While these binding affinities are well documented, there may be other undiscovered mechanisms of action. Stay tuned! ...Read more
