Home / Blog / Abilify Linked to Gambling Addiction

Abilify is a medication prescribed to treat mental illnesses, such as depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. It works, which is why so many doctors have turned to it over the years. However, it has recently been linked to a serious side effect that is catching many physicians, their patients, and families by surprise.

Abilify has been linked to compulsive behaviors, such as pathological gambling. Individuals who never had a gambling problem before taking Abilify have accumulated thousands of dollars in debt due to an uncontrollable compulsion to gamble after taking the medication. These debts put a significant financial strain on the patient and their families, leading to divorce, unemployment, and even bankruptcy. To date, Abilify has generated billions of dollars for its manufacturers, which is ironic since it has caused many of its users to go broke.

If you or someone you love developed compulsive gambling habits after taking Abilify, you may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturers. Hundreds of victims and their families have already come forward to seek damages, so don’t wait to get the help you need.
