Official Answer


Abilify MyCite tablets contain a sensor that transmits information indicating if the tablet has been taken.

The oral tablet formulation Abilify MyCite (aripiprazole) is embedded with the ingestible Proteus sensor that allows patients, and, if given access, doctors and caregivers, to track ingestion of the Abilify medication on a smartphone or web-based portal. The system sends a message from the pill’s sensor to a wearable patch on the patient, which then transmits to the device.

Abilify MyCite is an atypical antipsychotic used for the treatment of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and and depression in adults.

Who makes Abilify MyCite?

In November 2017 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Abilify MyCite (aripiprazole) from Otsuka Pharmaceuticals.
