What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

Description

ABILIFY (Aripiprazole) is a medication prescribed to treat or manage a variety of different conditions. Your doctor may have prescribed it for any of the following:

  • Agitation associated with schizophrenia or bipolar mania (injection formulation only)
  • Irritability associated with autistic disorder
  • Major depressive disorder, adjunctive treatment
  • Mania and mixed episodes associated with Bipolar I disorder
  • Tourette’s disorder
  • Schizophrenia

Mental health conditions like schizophrenia, Tourette’s disorder, and major depressive disorder are caused by an imbalance of neurotransmitters in brain cells. Neurotransmitters pass messages between brain cells and help to create the normal functioning systems of the brain. Examples of neurotransmitters include serotonin and dopamine.

ABILIFY works by interacting with the receptors that “read” serotonin and dopamine. In some cases, ABILIFY activates these receptors, and in other cases, ABILIFY blocks them and prevents them from becoming activated.

The mechanism of ABILIFY in the brain is extremely complex, and while we know what areas of the brain ABILIFY affects, we do not know exactly why the drug works to treat the conditions that it treats.

Directions

Most people are started in the dosage range of 2 mg to 15 mg by mouth once daily. The starting dose will vary based on what condition is being treated.

After a few weeks, the maintenance dose is usually increased somewhere between 5 mg to 15 mg once daily, with a maximum recommended dose of 30 mg once daily.

Ingredients

The active ingredient in ABILIFY is aripiprazole.

Cautions

ABILIFY and similar medications carry a black box warning because they have been known to increase deaths in geriatric patients who have dementia-related psychosis. Use ABILIFY with caution in this group of people.

Tell your doctor if you have diabetes or other metabolic conditions before starting ABILIFY.

If you experience symptoms of the movement disorder tardive dyskinesia while taking ABILIFY, tell your doctor immediately.

ABILIFY can cause a type of low blood pressure called orthostatic hypotension, which can cause dizziness and fainting.

Speak with your doctor or pharmacist for a full list of precautions.

Side Effects

Some of the most common side effects include:

  • Akathisia
  • Blurred vision
  • Constipation

  • Drooling
  • Extrapyramidal disorder
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea
  • Restlessness
  • Sedation
  • Somnolence
  • Tremor

The side effects you experience while taking ABILIFY medication will vary greatly depending on what you are using the medication to treat, what dose you are taking, and what other medications you are taking along with it.
