Helping the Victims of Abilify

When a drug is released, the makers of that drug are required to warn patients about potential side effects. Only with adequate warning can patients make an informed choice about whether to use the drug. In addition to help in making the decision to use or not use a medication, drug warnings give doctors, patients and their loved ones a chance to keep an eye out for danger. Some side effects are harder to connect to a medication than others. The victims of these side effects might never realize the connection between the drug and the problem unless they have been forewarned.

The Harmful Side Effects of Abilify

Multiple studies have shown that the drug Abilify can cause impulse control problems. Some of the patients who take Abilify develop impulse control-related problems, including:

  • Compulsive or pathological gambling
  • Compulsive eating
  • Sex addiction and risky sexual behavior
  • Shopping addiction
  • Other compulsive behaviors

The compulsive behaviors suffered by some Abilify users can lead to severe emotional, physical and financial harm. Some victims found themselves bankrupt. Some engaged in criminal behavior and ended up with legal problems that will follow them for a lifetime.
