    Aripiprazole is a drug that operates on dopamine levels in the brain and is typically prescribed to those who are dealing with bipolar mania or schizophrenia. It's typically administered once or twice per day, with dosages up to 20 mg per day. However, despite the fact that clinical trials have gone as high as 30 mg in daily doses, an overdose of Aripiprazole is still considered a medical emergency, no matter how recent it was. If you suspect an overdose has taken place, it's important to call your local poison control or emergency number immediately. If the individual arrives at the hospital, there are several steps the medical staff may take. They will do an assessment and possibly induce vomiting to eliminate the contents of the stomach and prevent further absorption. They may also do a stomach wash to clear the stomach of any residual medication still located in the digestive tract. Charcoal capsules may be administered to minimize absorption by binding the medication in the digestive tract. They may also dilute the drug by flushing fluids through intravenous lines, which will help minimize the effects of the overdose. The severity of symptoms and the patient's response to treatment will determine the treatment plan and prognosis. It is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible to ensure appropriate management of an Aripiprazole overdose.

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember, but if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and resume the regular schedule. To avoid side effects, avoid doubling up on doses to catch up. It is best to consult your doctor or pharmacist if you miss a dose to get guidance on how to proceed. They may provide customized advice based on your health condition and any potential drug interactions.
