Can Fluoxetine and Abilify be taken together?
Serious drug interactions are possible
Hello ma'am and welcome.
Thank you for writing to us.
I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that you have some very valid queries.
I should rightfully start by saying that the drug interaction result between fluoxetine and abilify (active ingredient aripiprazole) is placed in a serious category. This is because abilify can increase the effect or amount of fluoxetine in the body resulting in a very powerful fluoxetine effect which can bare potentially serious effects. I would strongly advice you to revisit your doctor and request a change in prescription.
As for the price of abilify (aripiprazole), this is a new anti-psychotic medication that helps effect the chemicals in the brain, it is not generic and has only metabolic side effects, hence the high price.
I hope you find my response both helpful and informative ma'am. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to help you.
