Pharmachologic effect

Pharmacological action - antipsychotic.


Aripiprazole has a high in vitro affinity for D2 and D3-dopamine receptors, 5HT1a- and 5HT2a-serotonin receptors and moderate affinity for D4-dopamine, 5HT2c- and 5HT7-serotonin, alpha1-adrenoreceptors and H1-histamine receptors. Aripiprazole is also characterized by moderate affinity for the sites of serotonin reuptake and lack of affinity for muscarinic receptors. Aripiprazole in animal experiments showed antagonism with respect to dopaminergic hyperactivity and agonism with respect to dopaminergic hypoactivity. Interaction not with dopamine and serotonin receptors can explain some clinical effects of aripiprazole.


Abilafia activity is mainly due to the presence of the starting material, aripiprazole. The average half-life of aripiprazole is approximately 75 hours. The equilibrium concentration is achieved after 14 days. Cumulation of the drug with multiple admission is predictable. The pharmacokinetics of aripiprazole in the equilibrium state are proportional to the dose. There were no daily fluctuations in the distribution of aripiprazole and its metabolite dehydroaripiprazole. It has been established that the main metabolite of the drug in human plasma, dehydroaripiprazole, has the same affinity for D2-dopamine receptors as aripiprazole.

Aripiprazole is rapidly absorbed after ingestion of Abilifai, while the Cmax of the drug in the plasma is reached after 3-5 hours. The absolute bioavailability of Abilifai tablets is 87%. Food intake for the bioavailability of aripiprazole is not affected.

Aripiprazole is intensively distributed in tissues, with an apparent volume of distribution of 4.9 l / kg. At a therapeutic concentration of more than 99%, aripiprazole binds to serum proteins, mainly with albumin. Aripiprazole does not affect the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of warfarin, i.e. does not displace warfarin from its association with blood proteins.

Aripiprazole undergoes pre-systemic metabolism only to a minimal extent. Aripiprazole is metabolized in the liver in three ways: by dehydrogenation, hydroxylation and N-dealkylation. According to in vitro experiments, the dehydrogenation and hydroxylation of aripiprazole occurs under the action of the enzymes CYP3A4 and CYP2D6, and N-dealkylation is catalyzed by the enzyme CYP3A4. Aripiprazole is the main component of the drug in the blood. In the equilibrium state, the AUC of dehydroaripiprazole is approximately 39% of the aripiprazole AUC in plasma.

After a single administration of labeled 14C-aripiprazole, approximately 27% and 60% of radioactivity is determined in urine and feces, respectively. Less than 1% of unchanged aripiprazole is determined in urine and approximately 18% of the dose taken is unchanged in the form of feces. The total clearance of aripiprazole is 0.7 ml / min / kg, mainly due to excretion by the liver.

There was no significant effect of H2-blocker histamine receptor famotidine, which causes potent inhibition of gastric acid secretion in the stomach, on the pharmacokinetics of aripiprazole.

Various routes of metabolism of aripiprazole are known, including with the participation of enzymes CYP2D6 and CYP3A4. In studies in healthy humans, potent inhibitors of CYP2D6 (quinidine) and CYP3A4 (ketoconazole) reduced aripiprazole clearance when administered by 52% and 38%, respectively. Therefore, the dose of aripiprazole should be reduced when used in combination with inhibitors of CYP3A4 and CYP2D6.

Receiving 30 mg aripiprazole together with carbamazepine, a potent inducer of CYP3A4, accompanied by a decline at 68 and 73% Cmax and AUC aripiprazole, respectively, and a decrease by 69 and 71% Cmax and AUC degidroaripiprazola its active metabolite respectively. You can expect a similar effect on other powerful inductors CYP3A4 and CYP2D6.

The in vitro metabolism of aripiprazole not involved enzymes CYP1A1, CYP1A2, CYP2A6, CYP2B6, CYP2C8, CYP2C9, CYP2C19 and CYP2E1, in connection with which it is unlikely its interaction with drugs and other factors (such as smoking), able to activate or inhibit these enzymes.

Simultaneous administration of lithium or valproate with 30 mg of aripiprazole daily had no clinically significant effect on the pharmacokinetics of aripiprazole.

In clinical studies, aripiprazole at doses of 10-30 mg / day had no significant effect on the metabolism of substrates of CYP2D6 (dextromethorphan), CYP2C9 (warfarin), CYP2C19 (omeprazole, warfarin) and CYP3A4 (dextromethorphan). In addition, aripiprazole and its main metabolite dehydroaripiprazole did not alter metabolism involving the enzyme CYP1A2 in vitro. The clinically significant effect of aripiprazole on drugs metabolized with these enzymes is unlikely.

Dosing and Administration

Inside, regardless of food intake.

Schizophrenia: It is recommended that Abilifai be administered at an initial dose of 10 or 15 mg once daily. The maintenance dose is 15 mg / day. In clinical trials, the effectiveness of the drug in doses of 10 to 30 mg / day is shown.

Manic episodes in bipolar disorder: the drug should be taken, starting at a dose of 15 or 30 mg / day. Dose changes, if necessary, should be performed at intervals of at least 24 hours. In clinical trials, the effectiveness of the drug in doses of 15-30 mg / day for manic episodes during admission for 3-12 weeks was demonstrated. Safety of doses above 30 mg / day in clinical trials was not evaluated.

When observing patients with type I bipolar disorder and manic or mixed episodes that had no symptoms with Abilifai (15 or 30 mg / day at the initial dose of 30 mg / day) for 6 weeks, a favorable effect of such supportive therapy. Periodically, patients should be examined to determine whether to continue supporting therapy.

It is not required to change the dosage of the drug when prescribing the drug to patients with renal insufficiency, hepatic insufficiency (class A, B and C according to the Child-Pugh classification).

Although experience in the use of the drug in patients over the age of 65 years is limited, dose adjustment for this category of patients is not required.


In clinical studies, cases of unintentional or deliberate overdose of aripiprazole with a single dose of up to 1080 mg, not accompanied by a fatal outcome, are described.

Symptoms: nausea, vomiting, asthenia, diarrhea and drowsiness. Clinically significant changes in basic physiological parameters, laboratory parameters and ECG were not detected in hospitalized patients.

The postmarketing experience of a single admission of up to 450 mg of aripiprazole in adult patients suggests a possible development of tachycardia. In addition, cases of overdose of aripiprazole in children (reception up to 195 mg) are described. Potentially dangerous symptoms of overdose include extrapyramidal disorders and transient loss of consciousness.

Overdose requires maintenance therapy, adequate airway patency, oxygenation, effective ventilation and symptomatic treatment. Drug reactions should be considered. Immediately, monitoring of cardiac performance with ECG registration should be initiated to detect arrhythmias. After a confirmed or suspected overdose of aripiprazole, careful medical attention is necessary until all symptoms disappear.

Activated charcoal (50 g), administered 1 hour after administration of aripiprazole, reduced AUC and Cmax of aripiprazole by 51 and 41%, respectively, which allows recommending its use in overdose.

Although there is no reliable data on the use of hemodialysis in case of an overdose of aripiprazole, the favorable effect of this method is unlikely. aripiprazole is not excreted by the kidneys in an unchanged form and is largely associated with plasma proteins.

Special instructions

Suicide attempts: a tendency to suicidal thoughts and attempts is characteristic of psychoses, so drug therapy must be combined with careful medical supervision. Abilifee should be discharged in a minimum amount sufficient to treat the patient; this will reduce the risk of overdose.

Late dyskinesia: the risk of developing tardive dyskinesia increases with the duration of therapy with neuroleptics, so if Abiliphae symptoms of late dyskinesia appear, reduce the dose of this drug or cancel it. After the withdrawal of therapy, these symptoms may temporarily increase or even appear for the first time.

Malignant neuroleptic syndrome: in the treatment of neuroleptics, incl. aripiprazole, a life-threatening symptom complex known as "malignant neuroleptic syndrome" (CNS) is described. This syndrome is manifested by hyperpyrexia, muscle rigidity, mental disorders and instability of the autonomic nervous system (irregular heartbeats and BP, tachycardia, sweating and cardiac arrhythmias). In addition, sometimes there is an increase in the activity of creatine phosphokinase, myoglobinuria (rhabdomyolysis), and acute renal failure. In case of symptoms of NSA or unexplained fever, all antipsychotics, incl. Abilifay, should be abolished.

Hyperglycemia and diabetes mellitus: hyperglycemia, sometimes expressed and associated with ketoacidosis, which can lead to hyperosmolar coma and even death, was noted in patients taking atypical antipsychotics. Although the association between the admission of atypical antipsychotics and hyperglycemic disorders is unclear, patients who have diabetes mellitus should regularly perform a blood glucose test when taking atypical antipsychotics. Patients who are at risk for diabetes (obesity, having diabetes in the family) should take the blood glucose level at the beginning of the course and periodically during the administration of the drug when taking atypical antipsychotics. Any patient taking atypical antipsychotics needs constant monitoring of symptoms of hyperglycemia, including increased thirst, frequent urination, polyphagia, and weakness.

Impact on the ability to drive and work with moving machinery

As with the appointment of other neuroleptics, when appointing aripiprazole, the patient should be warned about the dangers of working with moving mechanisms and driving.
