overall reaction to the treatment due to age- or pregnancy-related features
Pregnant women, children and older people must be especially careful during the treatment. As these patients are especially sensitive to any side reaction that may happen, the drug must be used only if it’s really necessary. In general, the drug must be used only if the benefits exceed the risks. In this case, you require continuous monitoring and checkups.
some allergic responses caused by inactive components, which need special attention
Both active and inactive components of the drugs may cause allergic response in patients susceptible. If there is a risk of any adverse effects, talk to your doctor in advance to prevent health complications. So, potential adverse effects can be caused by e.g. propylene glycol (cutaneous reactions like systemic contact dermatitis) or lactose monohydrate contained in liquid forms of the drug, which you should keep in mind if you have diabetes, or by hydroxypropyl cellulose, which often leads to the eye discomfort.

You should avoid drinking alcohol during the treatment with Abilify. You shouldn’t engage in any activity that requires clear vision and high concentration, such as driving or operating heavy machinery. Finally, you should prevent overheating and dehydration, as the medicine can make you sweat less. Therefore, working or exercising in hot weather is forbidden. It is important to drink enough liquid to prevent dehydration.
