Don't Treat Insomnia With Antipsychotics
Don't let new generics for aripiprazole (Abilify) lead to more liberal use of atypical antipsychotics at your hospital.
Aripiprazole is already one of the most commonly prescribed drugs in the U.S...and more money is spent on it than any other drug except sofosbuvir (Sovaldi).
That's partly because atypicals are being used for more than just schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Plus aripiprazole isn't as prone to weight gain and sedation as olanzapine or quetiapine.
