Abilify Savings Guide
Abilify (aripiprazole) is an antipsychotic medication prescribed to treat symptoms of certain psychiatric disorders, like bipolar I disorder (manic depression) and schizophrenia. Many psychiatric conditions are related to the levels of neurotransmitters (chemicals that allow nerves to communicate) in the brain.
The FDA approved a generic version of Abilify that may help patients save money on this prescription. Patients should ask their doctors if this generic is right for their particular condition. For uninsured patients who must take brand-name Abilify, a 30-day supply can cost hundreds of dollars. Even insured patients have co-pays; and considering that prescriptions like Abilify are often taken over a long period of time, those co-pays quickly begin to add up.
