Abilify® Lawsuit Attorneys
Standing Up for Injured Patients & Their Families
Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2002 for the treatment of depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and Tourette syndrome, Abilify® (aripiprazole) has since been linked to an increased risk of developing pathological behaviors that can dramatically impact a person’s life.
These behaviors may occur in patients taking Abilify® or other drugs containing aripiprazole:
- Compulsive gambling
- Binge eating
- Compulsive shopping
Crumley Roberts is currently investigating cases involving obsessive behaviors in patients who took or are taking Abilify® or generic aripiprazole drugs. These behaviors can lead to considerable financial losses, emotional trauma, employment difficulties, divorce, marital problems, and other damage that could last a lifetime.
At Crumley Roberts, we stand up for our clients, the community, and each other. Drug injury lawsuits are far from simple, but we have the commitment and resources to seek the best possible outcome for our clients. When you come to our firm, you will find that we put your needs first. We truly care and will treat you like family as we work to help you through this difficult time.
Abilify® Side Effects & Your Rights
In May of 2016, the FDA issued a safety communication, warning about new impulse-control problems associated with aripiprazole, marketed as Abilify®, Abilify Maintena®, and Aristada®. The agency warned of:
“…uncontrollable urges to gamble, binge eat, shop, and have sex reported with the use of the antipsychotic drug aripiprazole (Abilify, Abilify Maintena, Aristada, and generics).”
The warning went on to say that the urges reportedly stopped when patients discontinued use or lowered their dosage. The FDA also warned that they could result in harm to the patient or others. Recognizing these warning signs is crucial, as is informing your doctor so the appropriate action can be taken.
In addition to talking to your doctor, please consider calling Crumley Roberts at (866) 691-0607. If you or a loved one experienced any of these compulsive behaviors after taking Abilify®, we can review your legal rights and options with you.
