Healthy Living

Medication, therapy, regular discussions with your doctor, and the support of family and friends should all be important parts of your treatment plan. You may also want to discuss with your doctor how a few changes to your lifestyle could help you maintain a healthy life with bipolar I disorder.

As you manage your symptoms of bipolar I disorder, you may also want to consider your overall health. Here are some possible lifestyle tips you can discuss with your doctor:

  • Avoid alcohol and illicit drugs
    Do not drink alcohol while taking ABILIFY (aripiprazole). Abuse of alcohol or drugs can interfere with your treatment goals. Even a small amount of alcohol or an illicit drug may trigger an episode, disrupt your sleep pattern, and interfere with your medication.
  • Eat healthy foods like fruits, vegetables, fish,
    and whole grains

    Try to limit fast food, snack foods, sugar, and caffeine. Drink plenty of water and avoid getting over-heated or dehydrated. Eating a healthy diet and engaging in doctor-approved exercise can help you maintain your weight and contribute to overall health.
  • Wake up at a consistent time
    every morning

    Go to bed around the same time every night and get up at the same time every morning. An episode can be triggered by chemical changes in your body brought on by a disrupted sleep pattern. Keep in mind, in clinical studies, 8% of adults on ABILIFY felt sleepy or tired compared with 3% of adults on placebo (sugar pill). You should not drive or operate hazardous machinery until you know how ABILIFY affects you.
  • Reduce stress at work
    Maintain regular, predictable hours if you can. It helps to anticipate stressful situations such as holiday activities or child care issues so you can ask loved ones for help and support.
