Abilify is an antipsychotic drug that changes chemical actions in the brain. It’s used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder (manic depression), and may be used in combination with other drugs to treat major depressive disorder. Abilify is also prescribed to treat symptoms of autism spectrum disorder (irritability, aggression, mood swings, self-injury) in children 6 or older.
Always follow your doctor’s instructions and use Abilify exactly as prescribed.
Abilify is taken once daily, with or without food.
Keep Abilify in its blister packet before use. Handle with dry hands.
Dissolve tablet in your mouth without chewing. Do not swallow whole.
Don’t take Abilify for more than 6 weeks unless directed by your doctor.
Abilify can increase suicidal thoughts and behaviors, especially within the first few months of treatment and in children, teens, and young adults. Monitor for worsening signs of depression.
Abilify is not approved for treatment of dementia-related psychosis, and can increase the risk of death in elderly people with dementia.
Abilify can affect your judgment and motor skills. Don’t drive or operate machinery until you’ve adjusted to the medication.
Avoid overheating and dehydration. Abilify may make it difficult for your body to reduce its temperature.
Inform your doctor if you have any of the following conditions:
Pregnant or breastfeeding
History of heart problems, low blood pressure, stroke
Suicidal thoughts or attempts
Common side effects include:
Drowsiness, lethargy, sedation
More serious side effects include:
Suicidal thoughts or actions
Muscle rigidity or shaking
Low white blood cell counts
Uncontrollable movement in face
Can I stop taking Abilify if I’m feeling better?
Talk to your doctor before discontinuing Abilify. Suddenly withdrawing treatment could lead to a relapse in symptoms or unpleasant withdrawal.
Will I gain weight on Abilify?
Weight gain is a common side effect of Abilify. Making healthy lifestyle choices including a regular exercise routine can help minimize this effect and improve your outlook and mood.
I already take an antidepressant. Why did my doctor prescribe Abilify? Isn’t it an antipsychotic?
If you have difficult-to-treat depression, taking Abilify together with an antidepressant may help relieve your symptoms. This seems to be especially true in younger patients.

What's the difference between generic drugs and brand name drugs?
What's the difference between the branded products you sell and the ones I get locally?
The branded drugs we sell are chemically and therapeutically no different from the ones you get in your local pharmacy. They both generally come from the same exact manufacturer. Generally, the main difference* is in the packaging and the price. Our packaging may be different from what you get locally, but we're also much cheaper.
* Other differences may include differences in trade name, form, and general appearance.
Why are there packaging differences?
Due to differences in government regulation, different countries have different packaging requirements. For example, a product in Canada (or any other country) will have different packaging than the same product in the US even though both drugs are chemically and therapeutically equivalent and are generally manufactured by the same exact company.
Why are your drugs so much cheaper?
Due to government price controls, medications from Canada and many other countries are often significantly cheaper than in the United States. Also, other countries may have more affordable generic versions of drugs, which may not yet be available in the US.
