15 mgs to 10 mgs to 5 mg, then 4, then 3 then 2 then 1 (you can stop after you have reached 2 mg).

After each drop wait 19 days before the next one. For example, if you drop from 15mg to 10 mg continue with 10 mgs for 19 days before dropping to 5 mgs and so on.

i don't know really. i was on 10mg abilify and it wasn't working for me due to serious side effect, especially the movement disorder. so i just stopped it. cold turkey. i told my doctor i wasn't taking it anymore and he knew i was serious and tht there wasn't any way he could talk me into continuing. but i had no problems that i know of. that was in 2009. i will admit now that i am having serious movement disorders now. is it related? i don't know that either. so i'm seeing a neurologist tomorrow.

Is there a generic form of Aripiprazole?

The patent for Abilify currently expires in October 2014. This is the earliest possible date that a generic version of Abilify could become available. However, there are other circumstances that could come up to extend the exclusivity period of Abilify beyond 2014. These circumstances could include things such as lawsuits or other patents for specific Abilify uses. Once Abilify goes off patent, there may be several companies that will begin manufacturing a generic Abilify drug.
