Abilify Lawsuit Information

Overview of the Abilify Mass Tort

The Abilify mass tort represents a significant legal challenge against Bristol-Myers Squibb and Otsuka Pharmaceutical, the manufacturers of Abilify (Aripiprazole). This prescription medication, widely used to treat psychological disorders such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and major depression, has been linked to serious side effects that were not adequately disclosed to patients or healthcare providers. Since its FDA approval in 2002, millions have used Abilify, but it took nearly a decade to recognize its association with impulse control disorders. This oversight has led to over 2,600 lawsuits, culminating in a massive litigation effort to hold the manufacturers accountable for the emotional and financial damages suffered by patients.

Injuries Resulting from Abilify

Patients taking Abilify have reported a range of severe and unusual side effects, the most notable being compulsive behaviors. These include uncontrollable urges like compulsive gambling, which has been the most prevalent and scientifically substantiated claim. Many patients have experienced significant financial losses due to this side effect. Other reported issues include hypersexuality, resulting in lowered sexual inhibitions, and shopping addiction, leading to substantial debt. The drug has also been associated with tardive dyskinesia, a condition causing involuntary movements that can severely impact a person's quality of life. These side effects were not previously disclosed by the drug's manufacturers, leading to a lack of informed consent among users.
