Abilify Gambling Lawsuit
Brent Coon and Associates are investigating Abilify Lawsuits after the depression drug has been linked to an increased risk of developing a compulsive gambling problem. In 2014, two studies were released that linked Abilify to an increased risk of compulsive gambling. The JAMA Internal Medicine published a study that tied 37 cases of compulsive gambling to Abilify use, while Addictive Behavior later released a study detailing 7 cases of people developing gambling issues. Abilify is prescribed to treat schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and depression. Abilify is one of the top selling antisypchotic treatments in the United States with reported sales of a billion dollars a year. There have been reports of Abilify lawsuits being filed against the manufacturer Otsuka Pharmaceutical Company and Bristol-Myers Squibb.
The types of gambling issues that Abilify could possible cause includes:
- Casino Slots
- Table Games
- Sports Betting
- Fantasy Football
- Fantasy Baseball
- Daily Fantasy Football
- Daily Fantasy Golf Wagering
- Wreck less Stock Market Moves, including short selling
- Powerball tickets
- Scratch off Lottery Tickets
- High Stakes Poker Tournaments

Abilify lawsuits started after researchers learned about the link between Abilify was identified in a study as early 2001, when three cases of severe gambling problems arose from Abilify users were were published in the British Journal of Psychiatry.

That initial study that links Abilify to gambling problems reads in part, “This paper details three case reports that suggest that pathological gambling activity may have been adversely modified following treatment for psychosis with the anti psychotic aripiprazole.”
A man in New Jersey recently filed an Abilify Lawsuit, claiming that after he took Abilify it caused his compulsive gambling condition and caused him to lose over $75,000 dollars. The Abilify lawsuit claims that Bristol-Myers Squibb and Otsuka Pharmaceuticals “failed to warn” of the increased risks of developing a gambling habit. While the label for Abilify does say the drug may cause side effects, it does not specifically list gambling issues.
