Pharmaceutical companies make billions of dollars every year. Many of the medications they develop significantly enhance the lives of the people who take them, in spite of the risk of side effects. These individuals have weighed carefully the possible impact of these side effects and decided that the potential benefit is worth the risk. But what about the side effects not listed on the label? How can you evaluate the risks if you don’t know what the risks are?
Abilify is an anti-psychotic commonly prescribed to treat mental disorders, such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and severe depression. Among the side effects are suicidal thoughts and an increased risk of death in patients with dementia. However, a new side effect has recently surfaced that you won’t find on the warning label. Abilify has been linked to compulsive behaviors, such as binge eating and gambling addiction, causing some patients taking the medication to accumulate massive gambling debts that jeopardize their families’ financial security. In addition, these families are forced to spend thousands of dollars out-of-pocket on addiction rehabilitation in an attempt to put their lives back together. That’s why many families are seeking damages from the drug manufacturers, and they’re turning to Cory Watson.
If you or someone you love suffered from gambling addiction after taking Abilify, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. Contact our drug injury lawyers today for a free consultation of your claim. We’ll work to hold the manufacturers accountable for what your family has been through.
