Aripiprazole long-acting injection (LAI) is approved for the treatment of schizophrenia in adults. Recently, Europe and Canada approved the use of the two-injection start regimen: two separate injections of 400-mg long-acting aripiprazole along with a single 20-mg dose of oral aripiprazole. Aripiprazole showed efficacy in the treatment of adolescents with acute schizophrenia in several controlled trials, leading to its approval for 13- to 17-year-old adolescents with schizophrenia by the EMA. However, the LAI formulation still remains off-label in adolescents.
