Patients Say Abilify Turned Them Into Compulsive Gamblers and Sex Addicts

A year after her father took hostages and committed suicide by cop, Lucy kept freezing in the supermarket aisle.
“I couldn’t breathe, literally, my husband would often have to come pick me up from whatever aisle of the store I was stuck in and drive me home,” the traumatized daughter confided in a letter she wrote to her attorney that he provided to The Daily Beast.

The woman who had been happily married for 25 years was now sitting on a psychiatrist’s couch and popping a daily regimen of meds that she called the “pharmaceutical cocktail.”

They included Abilify, which was supposed to aid in treating her post-traumatic stress disorder.
“So began a life that was hazy, kind of disconnected,” she described in the letter.

Lucy blames the drug for her insatiable hunger for gambling that saw her drive at all hours of the night to Cripple Creek, a legion of Wild West-themed casinos in Colorado.

“I started going all the time,” she wrote. “I never even won, never came back with so much as a dime in my pocket,” she confessed.

Lucy burned through unemployment checks, pawned her mechanic husband’s automotive tools, and lied about needing money to buy baby formula.

As she puts it in the letter, “Nothing was off-limits when it came to getting the money I needed to keep up the ruse.”

Fanatical about the casino, and filling time in-between with lottery scratchers, Lucy’s urge to roll the dice was so desperate she admitted how she mastered her very own disappearing act.

“I’d stuff my bed at night to fool my husband that I was asleep when actually I was spinning the slots,” she admitted in the letter.

Like Lucy, thousands of patients who had been prescribed Abilify say in a mass tort lawsuit the drug created compulsions for sex and gambling, and that the drug makers knew of the serious side effects (as evidenced by warning labels in Canada and Europe) but waited years not to warn U.S. consumers.

“There will probably be over 1,000 cases,” Stephen Hunt Jr., of the Alabama-based law firm Cory Watson, who is repping some of the gamblers and sex-obsessed victims airing their Abilify horror stories after his firm and others began a national ad campaign.


EDITORS NOTE: Do you understand what you just read? Voting is not like a box of chocolates. The Republicans and the Democrats do NOT care about you or your children or your family. No warning label was required in the US because our politicians work for Big Business not for you and me. When will you, Forrest Gump, get this through your thick empty skulls. The Republicans and the Democrats are destroying America, WAKE UP!!

Tell me Forrest, if they cared about you, why was there no warning label in the US but in Canada, it had to have a warning label? Where was the FDA? Taking bribes as usual, you stupid fuckin' American. I've been telling, yelling this since 1984 and you assholes don't even have the decency to comment back. I've wrote how many articles on this blog alone and you've had the decency to write back twice. You are a terrible pen pal, a horrible citizen and an even worse human being for allowing this to happen. Why am I the only one willing to stand up to this crooked system? Because every other American is Forrest Gump and voting is like a box of chocolates. Ya' never know what you're going to get. Hum, but I do.
