Abilify – Compulsive Behavior Injuries
Bristol-Myers Squibb’s top-selling Abilify drug earned the company $6.4 billion in 2013. Prescribed for treatment of depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia, Medscape notes that more than 8.8 million Abilify prescriptions were written in 2014 alone.
Possible Injuries – Compulsive Behaviors
In 2016, the FDA issued a warning that it had reviewed 184 cases connecting Abilify to compulsive behaviors, such as gambling, sexual behavior, shopping, eating, and impulse-control issues.
The addictive behavior began soon after the patient began taking Abilify and stopped after the patient switched to different medicine.
Abilify patients have developed an uncontrollable urge to perform an action (such as, gambling) and cannot stop themselves from doing it. The patient will perform the action even if it's causing him or her personal, social, and financial injuries.
The Abilify lawsuit claims the makers of Abilify failed to warn doctors and patients that the drug could cause compulsive gambling, shopping, eating, and sex. As of July 2018, more than 1,600 lawsuits are filed in federal court against the Abilify manufacturers.
Our law firm is accepting clients who became addicted to gambling and lost more than $50,000 while taking Abilify.
