Date:11/20/2007

gain greater than or equal to 7 percent increase from baseline was seen in 5 percent of adult patients treated with adjunctive ABILIFY and 1 percent of adjunctive placebo-treated patients. The mean change from baseline in weight was 1.7 kilograms (kg) for adjunctive ABILIFY and 0.4 kg for adjunctive placebo.

In a pool of two placebo-controlled trials of patients, the rate of discontinuation due to adverse reactions with the use of adjunctive ABILIFY compared to placebo plus ADT was 6 percent vs 2 percent, respectively. The most commonly observed adverse reactions (incidence greater than or equal to 5 percent and at least twice the incidence of placebo plus ADT) associated with the use of adjunctive ABILIFY were akathisia (25 percent vs 4 percent), restlessness (12 percent vs 2 percent), insomnia (8 percent vs 2 percent), constipation (5 percent vs 2 percent), fatigue (8 percent vs 4 percent) and blurred vision (6 percent vs 1 percent).
