In 2002, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved
Abilify (aripiprazole) to treat patients suffering from depression, bipolar
disorder, schizophrenia, and Tourette Syndrome. Abilify works by balancing
levels of dopamine and serotonin in the patients’ brain.
Know the Risks
While the drug has proved a success for its manufacturers, reports show
patients on Abilify may face an increased risk of pathological behavior—including
compulsive gambling or hypersexuality. Research indicates Abilify may
overstimulate the reward system in the brain—causing those taking
the drug to develop an impulse-control disorder. Impulse control problems
typically end soon after patients stop taking the drug or reduce their dosage.
An FDA Warning Issued
A drug-safety communication released by the FDA in 2016 states the warning
label for Abilify will now include the potential risk of compulsive or
uncontrollable urges to gamble, binge eat, shop, or have sex. Consequences
of the pathological behaviors linked to Abilify may include financial
troubles, marriage difficulties, work-related problems, and emotional distress.
