U.S. FULL PRESCRIBING INFORMATION, including Boxed WARNINGS, and Medication Guide.

Antidepressants may increase suicidal thoughts or behaviors in some children, teenagers, and young adults, especially within the first few months of treatment or when the dose is changed. Depression and other serious mental illnesses are themselves associated with an increase in the risk of suicide. Patients on antidepressants and their families or caregivers should watch for new or worsening depression symptoms, unusual changes in behavior, or thoughts of suicide. Such symptoms should be reported to the patient’s healthcare provider right away, especially if they are severe or occur suddenly. ABILIFY®(aripiprazole) is not approved for use in pediatric patients with depression. See More Safety Information

INDICATION: ABILIFY (aripiprazole) is used for the treatment of manic and mixed episodes associated with bipolar I disorder in adults and in pediatric patients 10 to 17 years of age. It can be used either by itself or as an add-on treatment to lithium or valproate.

Resources and Support

The challenges for children with
bipolar I disorder and their families should not be underestimated. Fortunately, there is plenty of support available if you know where to look—from schools, healthcare professionals, hospitals, and national and local organizations.

Support Groups

Support groups are a resource for parents, siblings, other family members, and friends of a child or adolescent with bipolar I disorder. When no one seems to understand what you are going through, they provide an opportunity to exchange experiences, information, ideas, and tips. This can help you meet the challenges of caring for your child with bipolar I disorder—and caring for yourself.

Ask your child’s doctor or mental health professional to help find a support group near you.
