Aripiprazole: See: http://www.drugs.com/price-guide/abilify There is reportedly a generic form but if you can not use that - don't know what to tell you.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

Here is a great resource about the cost of prescription and generic drugs and their equivalents in the US: http://www.ndrugs.com/ Talk to your doc about an alternative. Contact the drug company for possible programs for people who cannot afford the drug.
