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 schizophrenia.

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 drugs can trigger a relapse.

  • 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 can contribute to overall health.
  • Develop a regular sleep/wake cycle
    Try to go to bed around the same time every night and get up at the same time every morning. If you are having difficulty sleeping, talk to your doctor. Keep in mind, ABILIFY (aripiprazole) may make you feel sleepy or tired. In 4- and 6-week clinical studies, 9% of adults with schizophrenia taking ABILIFY tablets felt sleepy or tired, compared with 7% of patients taking a placebo. You should not drive or operate hazardous machinery until you know how ABILIFY affects you.
