Aripiprazole ER injection is prescribed for the treatment of schizophrenia. This antipsychotic medication is approved for use in people who have previously taken the oral form of aripiprazole and have tolerated it well. It works by blocking the effects of dopamine and other brain chemicals, which are believed to be elevated in people with these conditions.
