What is the Abilify Lawsuit?
Aripiprazole is used to treat certain mental/mood disorders (such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, Tourette’s disorder, and irritability associated with autistic disorder). It may also be used in combination with other medication to treat depression. Aripiprazole is known as an antipsychotic drug (atypical type). It works by helping to restore the balance of certain natural chemicals in the brain (neurotransmitters).
Abilify has been linked to reports of pathological gambling, compulsive shopping, hyper-sexuality and other impulse-control disorders. The drug manufacturers, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Otsuka Pharmaceuticals, currently face over 800 product liability lawsuits, each raising similar claims including allegations that users and the medical community were not warned about the risks associated with using Abilify.
The Abilify drug manufacturers provided warnings on the drug label in Europe in 2012 and Canada in 2015. However, consumers in the United States were never provided a warning until August 2016. The FDA required the drug makers to add new warnings about the increased risks that Abilify users may experience pathological gambling, compulsive shopping, and similar behaviors.
