I have been on a mood disorder medication Abilify (Aripriprazole) for 13 years. Recently I discovered that it causes behavioural addiction e.g. pathological gambling, binge eating and hypersexuality all of which I have suffered from since I started taking the drug. Even engaged in the 12 step programme to try to beat these addictions but the one I could never beat was phoning psychics and tarot card readers on premium rate phone lines. Have only recently managed to stop since my dosage was reduced from 15 mgs (maintenance) to 7.5 mgs. Have spent a fortune calling psychics and at one time I was £67k in debt!!! Luckily, have managed to pay most of it off. Bristol Squib-Myers and Otsukana who make this drug made $6billion last year. It is the biggest selling drug of its kind. In the USA there are class actions against BSM and Otsukana but in the UK I was told my case was difficult if not impossible and no lawyer would take it on. Where is the justice in that? I thought I was a sex and love addict and have been single most of my adult life. Now I realise it could be because of this medication that I have been on! Ok!
