    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I was wondering if there is another medication like abilify that is a generic form and therefore more reasonably priced.

    I took that for some time and my pharmacy usually had generics...but not for abilify. I don't think there is one unfortunately.

    what was prescribed for you instead of abilify? I contacted my psyc. but she has not got back to me as yet. I would appreciate your input.

    I take lithium which is really cheap, just a few dollars for 3 months. I also take serequel, lamictal, and geodon, but they are more expensive. My serequel and geodon without insurance is over $1000.00 each. Thank good for insurance. I only pay $20.00 for 3 months for each of these. Lamictal has a generic so it too is less expensive but still not as cheap as the lithium.
