What is Abilify?
If your doctor had prescribed you Abilify, you should know that you can get the same medication under another name cheaper. The reason for that is that the active substance of the brand medication called Aripiprazole can be made by other pharmaceutical companies who are free to set lower prices for it. The preparation makes part of the atypical antipsychotics class and is appointed for the therapy of schizophrenia, manic episodes in bipolar disorder, etc. (read the respective section of this guide for detailed info).
The active agent was approved relatively recently in the U.S., in the early 2000s. However, the generic drug makers had already gained the right to use the formula and make the same medicine themselves marketing them under different trade names which is why you can buy Abilify at a lower price if you look for the drug based on Aripiprazole but named differently.
When should Aripiprazole be appointed?
Here you can find the indications for the drug use but we still insist that you should buy Generic Abilify regardless of the name on the package of pills and start taking it only after your doctor approved that you should use the medication based on Aripiprazole.

The medication can be also appointed as an addition to the therapy consisting of lithium or valproic acid for the treatment of manic or mixed episodes of bipolar disorder in the presence of psychotic symptoms or without them. Aripiprazole can be also used as a maintenance therapy to prevent relapses in people with a bipolar disorder. For bipolar disorder, the medication can be used in adults and children older than ten years.
People who suffer from severe major depression and receive antidepressants can in some cases be also appointed the additional therapy with Aripiprazole.

The medication has the lowest interaction with the adrenergic, histamine, and muscarinic receptors between all other atypical antipsychotics. Such specifics of the medication’s principle of action explain its high efficacy and at the same time the low likelihood and severity of the negative reactions such as body mass increase and movement disorders.
