What's Going On?
People are suing Bristol-Myers claiming that Abilify caused them to develop compulsive gambling habits and that the drug company owes them money as a result.
Can Abilify Cause Compulsive Gambling?
Several studies have found a possible link between compulsive gambling and Abilify use, while the FDA has at least 30 reports of this side effect from Abilify users. Additionally, both Europe and Canada's labeling for Abilify includes the risk of pathological gambling – but no such information exists on U.S. labels.
