Gambling, uncontrollable shopping, hyper-sexuality and overeating are just a few of the potentially harmful, compulsive behaviors that have been linked to the drug Abilify (aripiprazole). People who have experienced impulse control problems when taking the drug describe urges that feel impossible to control.
It may go without saying that these compulsive behaviors have had a ruinous effect on their victims' lives in some cases. Relationships and families have been pulled apart, insurmountable gambling debts accrued and unhealthy choices made in order to satisfy these compulsions.
Do you think you may have a claim? Lawsuits are filed nationwide against the manufacturer of Abilify. Although the drug's warning label was updated in May 2016 to reflect this dangerous side effect, people had been taking the drug for many years previously without getting the full picture of how it could affect impulse control. Call our lawyers now to find out if you have a claim. You may be entitled to compensation for the harm that has been caused to you by taking Abilify.
Many victims feel they were not given a proper warning prior to the 2016 label update. Europe issued a warning about compulsive behavior tied to the drug in 2012, yet it wasn't until 4 years later that people in the US were properly warned.
If you or a loved one exhibited dangerous, compulsive behavior after taking Abilify, you may have a claim to pursue compensation from the drug manufacturer.
