There are other medications that are cheaper than Abilify that treat in a simiar way. You might ask your doctor about Lamical (lamotrigine). It would require a script obviously. You might be able to get samples from your doctor for the Abilify and try for a pharmacy assistance program if you have no insurance. The pharmaceutical company has a program to help people who can't afford their medication. Go to RxAssist.org choose patient portal, type in the name of the medication and then select from the list, print out the applicaion and take to your doctor. Sort of a pain but well worth the effort so to receive meds free if you qualify.

Glad to hear you are doing better, Maso. I just bought and put together a stationary bicyle so I can start exercising. Hoping that it helps me feel better.

Sorry to hear that, this medication certainly is expensive, I was in it at one time. Did you start on it to try it and now that you need to refill it you can't afford the refill? If this is going to be a recurring thing, either seek prescription assistance programs or talk to your doctor about an alternative. Ability is an atypical antipsychotic medication like seroquel or zyprexa, both of which have some forms of generic available, but all meds work differently for everyone so if abilify works for you, I'd do my best to try and stay on it.

Good luck!
