In brief: Abilify (aripiprazole) adjustment

Most people who respond to Abilify (aripiprazole) do so in 2 weeks at 5 mg daily.
Sometimes, your physician may start at a lower dose so it may take longer or require a dose change upward to be sure. Abilify (aripiprazole) has a very very long length of time in the body. I always tell patients that we may have to decrease the abilfy dose with time. I watch carefully for side effects later on in treatment-unusual situation.
