My 13 year granddaughter is on 10 mg of abilify

My 13 year granddaughter is on 10 mg of abilify but she is showing no signs of schizophrenia bi-polar or terets. I am concerned as to why a dr would put her on such a high dose of such a strong medication. Can you give any other reason that this would be?

I am a school psychologist and have seen a significant increase in children being prescribed Abilify in the past 2 months. Diagnosis range in age 5-13 with either ADHD, bipolar, or anxiety and often by a family nurse practioner. Is this common? Are there studies supporting this drug in children under age 10? Thank you for your time

What over the counter med. can one get if one can t afford to pay for 10 mg of abilify? I m asking for my grandson who has been taking this med for many years. He turned 21 last year and have been denied med. coverage. He was on medi-cal all his life.

2 years ago, as diagnosed, my son was schizophrenia, had been tried for many mediciens, but no much help. Year 2016, he started taking Abilify 10 mg, it worked very good for him, but right now he gained 20 pounds and feels fatigue and back pain. We would like to tap-off Ambility to 7.5 mg then 7 mg, then 6.5 mg...then no more Amlify if it works well for us. Did you see any patient tap-off Ambilify liked that?
