Can't Afford Abilify


Recommended Posts

About half a year ago (give or take several months...unsure), I tried Zyprexa after many unsuccesful attempts to alleviate some of my symptoms with antidepressants.

The Zyprexa REALLY worked, however I had to stop it due to the fact that it brought up my liver counts, among some other things, so I had to stop taking it. (I am not psychotic, but it helps with my obsessiveness, anxiety, and focusing issues among other things.)

Recently I stumbled across Abilify. My doctor prescribed it for me, however, I cannot afford it, and there is really no getting around it.

there's no generic for Abilify, no.  not yet.  but it would be nice if there were.

Abilify and Zyprexa are atypical antipsychotics.  Also in this class are:

Atypical Antipsychotics  

Risperdal

Olanzapine (zyprexa)

Clozapine (clozaril)

Seroquel

Geodon

Abilify

some of these have generics, check google, or check with your doctor.

Good luck with these.  Zyprexa still seems to be the forerunner to this group for most people, but the side effects are often too steep for them to take.  I know they were for me.
