U.S. Food and Drug Administration Approves ABILIFY(R) (aripiprazole) for Adolescent Patients With Schizophrenia
Date:11/6/2007

of pediatric patients with schizophrenia, common adverse events (greater than or equal to 5 percent and at least twice the rate of placebo) associated with ABILIFY were extrapyramidal disorder, somnolence and tremor. These common adverse reactions appeared to have a possible dose response relationship: extrapyramidal disorder (ABILIFY 10 mg: 13 percent; ABILIFY 30 mg: 21.6 percent; placebo: 5 percent), somnolence (ABILIFY 10 mg: 11 percent; ABILIFY 30 mg: 21.6 percent; placebo: 6 percent) and tremor (ABILIFY 10 mg: 2 percent; ABILIFY 30 mg: 11.8 percent; placebo: 2 percent). The discontinuation rate due to an adverse event was 5 percent for ABILIFY and 2 percent for placebo.

In this six-week study, weight gain greater than or equal to 7 percent increase from baseline was seen in 5 percent of pediatric patients treated with ABILIFY and 1 percent of placebo-treated patients. The mean change from baseline in weight was 0.13 kilograms (kg) for ABILIFY and -0.83 kg for placebo.
