Abilify Attorney in Pennsylvania

Fight with a Pennsylvania Defective Drugs Lawyer

In 2002, Abilify (aripiprazole) was FDA-approved to treat schizophrenia. Two years later, it was approved to treat bipolar disorder; in 2007 it was also approved to treat a major depressive disorder. It is thought that Abilify has a strong effect on important chemicals in the brain, such as dopamine, which controls pleasure. Excessive levels of dopamine can influence compulsive, addictive behaviors. Because Abilify acts as a sort of dopamine, there have been numerous reports of patients developing addictive habits as a result of taking the medication. Once the medication was stopped, the addiction stopped as well.
