About Aripiren 5 Tablet 10'S

Aripiren 5 Tablet 10'S belongs to a class of drugs called antipsychotics and mood stabilizers primarily used to treat mood disorders like schizophrenia, irritability linked with autism, and Tourette's syndrome. Besides this, Aripiren 5 Tablet 10'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.

Aripiren 5 Tablet 10'S contains Aripiprazole which 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. Aripiren 5 Tablet 10'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, Aripiren 5 Tablet 10'S improves mood swings, depression, and other psychotic problems. 

Take Aripiren 5 Tablet 10'S as prescribed. Your doctor will advise you how often you take Aripiren 5 Tablet 10'S based on your medical condition. Some people may experience drowsiness, headache, tiredness, akathisia (inability to sit still), difficulty sleeping, light-headedness, indigestion, shaking, blurred vision, nausea, vomiting, anxiety, and increased saliva production. Most of these side effects of Aripiren 5 Tablet 10'S do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

Avoid taking Aripiren 5 Tablet 10'S if you are pregnant or breastfeeding and consult a doctor. Aripiren 5 Tablet 10'S is not recommended for children below 15 years of age. If you have any self-harming thoughts or behavior while taking Aripiren 5 Tablet 10'S, please contact a doctor immediately. If you have diabetes, abnormal blood pressure, high cholesterol, fits, involuntary muscle movements especially in the face, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), blood clots, a history of stroke or heart attack, kidney or liver problems, inform your doctor before taking Aripiren 5 Tablet 10'S.
