About ARIP MT 30MG TABLET 15'S

ARIP MT 30MG TABLET 15'S belongs to a class of drugs called antipsychotics and mood stabilizer primarily used to treat mood disorders like schizophrenia, irritability linked with autism, and Tourette's syndrome. Besides this, ARIP MT 30MG TABLET 15'S also helps in managing mental depression along with other antidepressant medicines. Schizophrenia affects the ability of a person to feel, think and behave clearly. Tourette's syndrome is a mental disorder characterized by uncontrollable, repetitive movements or unwanted sounds (tics). Psychosis may be caused due to disturbances in chemical messenger activity known as neurotransmitters (like dopamine and serotonin) in the brain.

ARIP MT 30MG TABLET 15'S contains Aripiprazole that stabilizes and blocks the dopamine and serotonin receptors in the brain, preventing its overactivity, thereby controlling the positive symptoms like hallucinations, misbelief, and unfriendly characteristics of schizophrenia. ARIP MT 30MG TABLET 15'S improves the activity of dopamine and serotonin receptors in other areas of the brain. It helps control negative symptoms (like lack of emotion, social isolation, poor attention and memory loss) of schizophrenia. Thus, ARIP MT 30MG TABLET 15'S improves mood swings, depression and other psychotic problems.
