FDA approves ‘Trackable’ Pill! Just NO
The Abilify MyCite aripiprazole tablets – for treating schizophrenia and manic episodes – have an ingestible sensor embedded inside them that records that the medication has been taken.
A patch worn by the patient transmits this information to their smartphone.
The information can also be sent to the prescribing doctor, if the patient consents to this.
The prescribing notes also stress that Abilify MyCite should not be used to track drug ingestion in “real-time” or during an emergency, because detection may be delayed or may not occur.
We are going in directions we should not , would you take this pill?
