Rexulti and Abilify

Rexulti® is an antipsychotic medication that is sold by Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd of Tokyo — the same manufacturer of another antipsychotic drug called Abilify (aripiprazole). Around the same time Abilify lost patent protection, drug-makers created a similar medication called brexpiprazole and sold it under the Rexulti brand-name.

Rexulti and Gambling Addiction

Rexulti and Abilify are highly similar medications. They are both used to treat severe mood disorders like schizophrenia. Likewise, they may have a similar risk of compulsive behavior side effects. The label on Rexulti recommends talking to a doctor if you have a history of gambling addiction. The label also warns about cases of “pathological gambling” and other impulse-control disorders with similar drugs.

FDA Warnings for Abilify

In May 2016, the FDA warned that Abilify side effects include uncontrollable urges to gamble, eat, shop, and have sex. These impulse-control disorders can have a devastating effect on a person’s livelihood and relationships.

The label on Abilify also warns that patients may not recognize that their addictive behaviors are abnormal. This is why it is essential that doctors specifically ask about any new or intense urges to gamble, eat, shop, or have sex. Patients may need to stop taking Abilify.

What is the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but we are not filing a Rexulti class action lawsuit against Otsuka Pharmaceuticals. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits for people who had gambling side effects or increased compulsive behaviors.

About Class Actions

Class actions are typically filed by one person on behalf of everyone who had the same type of injury. If compensation is awarded, the payout is divided equally with everyone who joins the class action.

Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action

The problem with class actions is that members may have to share the settlement or jury verdict with everyone else in the lawsuit. They may also have to accept a “low-ball” settlement or massive fees.

Instead of a class action, our lawyers are investigating individual lawsuits on behalf of people who developed severe side effects of Rexulti. We are concerned that patients may not have been sufficiently warned about the potential risk of gambling addiction or increasing compulsive behaviors from Rexulti.
