Doctors prescribe Abilify (aripirazole) to nearly a million Americans each year to treat mental disorders such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and major depression, allowing them to lead more stable lives. While the drug is effective at helping to control symptoms, it comes with a side effect that patients don?t expect: compulsive gambling.
Several studies linked Abilify to compulsive behaviors ? binge eating, hypersexual behavior and pathological gambling ? in people with no history of these problems prior to taking the drug. This compulsive gambling is so addictive that it?s difficult to stop without professional help.
