Hi prabha,


Again, this is a drug I'm not familiar with.  I'll research this one, too.


However, I can tell you that discontinuing any SZ drug you run the risk of a psychotic episode or relapse.

Arip MT 15 mg a day is a lower dose . It is given to stop the symprtoms of SZ. If stopped suddenly, the SZ may relapse after  few days of stopping. Hence dont stop if you are taking the medicine. Madam Christina is a good guide in this regard. Arip is also knowm as Abilify, Arippirazole etc.

The tablet MUST be taken with a lot of thought. Please take a second, third opinion on whether you really need it. There are serious side effects to it. My BP fell, and I had vertigo for a series of nights and could not sleep. I stopped taking the tablet, and got myself rediagnosed. I have no schizophrenia and the doctor who prescribed it to me was a twat who should be sitting in jail for her irresponsibility.


Schizophrenia cannot be cured by neurological medications. It is behavioural too. Moreover, medication needs to be prescribed keeping in care a patient's physiological condition. Prescribing a medicine that can have side effects on a person is irresponsible and there is NO excuse for it.


I would suggest not taking the medicine, because of the ghastly experience I had and the drastic change that I felt after I stopped it. But this is a biased, personal view, and I'd not suggest you follow my advice blindly either. Just be really careful.

Hi sir, My brother is suffering from Schizophrenia. So I consulted a psychologist in my city. He prescribed the drug Aripiprazole which is commonly used anti psychotic. But I found the drug to be very risky from internet sources. So I dont want to give this drug to my brother anymore. I want to know that what side effects will be If I stop taking the drug suddenly?
