Abilify is a widely prescribed, atypical, anti-psychotic prescription medicine developed and marketed by Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd, and various Otsuka subsidiaries. In many patients, Abilify causes uncontrollable behaviors such as compulsive gambling. The manufacturers warn about this side effect in Europe and Canada but not in the United States. Internal company documents acknowledge a plausible biological mechanism based on the long-known relationship of dopamine (upon which Abilify acts in the brain) and compulsive gambling.
The Litigation Group will educate members about Abilify and keep them apprised of the status of litigation through Litigation Group meetings, the group’s list server, and the sharing of materials.
