BRIDGEWATER, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Amneal Pharmaceuticals LLC (www.amneal.com) today announced the launch of aripiprazole oral solution in 1 mg/mL strength, allowing prescribers to continue writing for the recently discontinued reference brand.
The Amneal generic — one of the first liquid forms on the market — is an AA-rated, therapeutic equivalent to the discontinued Abilify® Oral Solution. It is now shipping in 150 mL (5 fl oz) bottles through wholesalers, distributors and directly to the trade.
