The LSD of Anti-Psychotics –
March 20, 2018 – Compulsive gambling, hyper-sexuality and compulsive shopping are all listed as harmful side effects in lawsuits against the anti-psychotic drug, Abilify. This week, five patients in northern Nevada have filed a suit against the drug’s manufacturers. The drug is primarily used to treat mental health issues like schizophrenia and bipolar disorders. An attorney for the plaintiffs in Washoe County says the drug led to compulsive behavior that not only caused financial losses, but also mental anguish. Perhaps the worst part, he says, is that the drug makers knew about the risks, but didn’t warn patients. Attorney Peter Wetherall says there are more than 750 lawsuits presently pending against Abilify’s manufacturers. He adds that all of those lawsuits cite compulsive behavior associated with the use of the medication.
