Abilify (aripiprazole): Similar, since both are used concomitantly.

Can have similar se': Ability injection most common side effects are sedation or excessive sleepiness, and some effects common to this class of drugs, causing akathisia, or inner feeling of restlessness. Mild tremor may also be noticed. However most of these side effects are treatable and mild in intensity. But as intramuscular drug stays in the blood for approx one month, it is important to bring it to your doctors.
