1 doctor agrees
In brief: Yes relatively
Abilify (aripiprazole) was approved in 2002.
Fda indications include: schizophrenia, acute manic and mixed episodes associated with bipolar disorder; an adjunct for the treatment of major depressive disorder; to treat irritability in children with autism. It is a Dopamine receptor partial agonist, which makes it unique compared to prior medications (even relatively new ones) for schizophrenia.
