Free trial units of all ARISTADA® (aripiprazole lauroxil) doses, including ARISTADA INITIO® (aripiprazole lauroxil) and the first and only 2-month dose (ARISTADA 1064 mg) for schizophrenia, are available for hospitalized patients.
ARISTADA and ARISTADA INITIO are provided free of charge at eligible hospitals for appropriate patients. Hospitalized patients may receive up to 2 free trial units of ARISTADA per calendar year, subject to quantity limits. ARISTADA INITIO will be offered and available to ship with each ARISTADA dose.
