INTRODUCTION

ARIZE 5MG contains Aripiprazole which belongs to the group of medicine called antipsychotics. It is indicated in the treatment of bipolar I disorder in both adults and in adolescents (13 years and older). Bipolar I disorder is a serious mental illness in which the person will experience a full manic episode with or without a major depressive episode. Manic episodes are usually characterized by emotional highs, hyperactivity, needing much less sleep than usual, pressure of speech, talking very quickly with racing ideas, aggressiveness and sometimes severe irritability. ARIZE 5MG can also be used to prevent the recurrence of bipolar I disorder in adult patients who have previously responded to the treatment. It can also be used to treat schizophrenia in adults and in adolescents (15 years and older). Schizophrenia is a serious mental disorder characterized by extremely disordered thinking, hallucinations, delusions, suspiciousness, incoherent speech, anxiety, depression and abnormal behavior which affects your daily functioning.

Aripiprazole acts by altering the levels of certain chemical messengers which are responsible for your stabilizing mood and thoughts. While taking this medicine, inform your doctor immediately if you experience any unusual mental problems such as thoughts of killing or harming yourself (suicidal thoughts) or are developing uncontrollable unusual urges or cravings (such as addictive gambling, excessive eating or spending, increase in sexual thoughts or feelings or an abnormally high sex drive). Your doctor might reduce the dose or suggest an alternative therapy.
