Aripiprazole is a medication used in the treatment of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and other psychiatric conditions. It stabilizes mood and reduces hallucinations. Many people who suffer from such serious disorders rely on the ability of their prescription medications to live a more normal, symptom-free life. Unfortunately, users of Abilify and other aripiprazole medications have suffered from the harm of compulsive behavior linked to the drug.
Abilify has been linked to the following compulsive behaviors:
- Binge eating
Taken to their extremes, these behaviors can be seriously damaging. For example, compulsive gambling can be financially disastrous while hypersexuality can lead to obsessive thoughts and impulsive sexual behavior, which could lead to sexually transmitted diseases or unwanted pregnancy.
