What is Abilify Mycite?

Abilify Mycite is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. Abilify Mycite is a drug-device combination product containing aripiprazole tablets embedded with an Ingestible Event Marker (IEM) sensor used to track drug ingestion. Abilify Mycite is indicated for the:

  • Treatment of adults with schizophrenia
  • Treatment of bipolar I disorder – as an acute treatment of adults with manic and mixed episodes as monotherapy and as an adjunct to lithium or valproate, or the maintenance treatment of adults as monotherapy and as an adjunct to lithium or valproate
  • Adjunctive treatment of adults with major depressive disorder (MDD)

Abilify Mycite has certain limitations of use. Whether Abilify Mycite improves patient compliance or modifies aripiprazole dosage has not been proved. The use of Abilify Mycite to track drug ingestion in “real-time” or in an emergency is not recommended as detection may be slow or not occur. Abilify Mycite is not recommended to be used in pediatric patients.

What doses of Abilify Mycite are available?

Abilify Mycite is available as a tablet with a sensor, in the following doses: 2 mg, 5 mg, 10 mg, 15 mg, 20 mg, and 30 mg.

The Abilify Mycite System is a drug-device combination product containing:

  • An aripiprazole tablet with an embedded Ingestible Event Marker (IEM) sensor 1mm in size. The IEM is activated once it comes into contact with the gastric fluid and then communicates to the Mycite Patch, to track aripiprazole ingestion
  • The Mycite Patch (wearable sensor) detects the ingestion of the Abilify Mycite tablet, records the ingestion of the IEM, and transmits data to the mobile Mycite app
  • This data can be shared with healthcare providers and caregivers

See the full prescribing information for the complete boxed warning and the medication guide, and always speak with a healthcare professional about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
