Rexulti and Abilify
Rexulti (brexpiprazole) is an antipsychotic drug from Otsuka Pharmaceuticals that is highly similar to another antipsychotic drug called Abilify (aripiprazole). In fact, Rexulti was introduced around the same time Otsuka lost patent protection for Abilify.
Rexulti and Gambling Addiction
The label (PDF) on Rexulti does not warn that gambling addiction is a potential side effect, but it does mention that “pathological gambling” has been reported with similar antipsychotic medication. The label on Rexulti recommends telling your doctor about gambling problems.
FDA Warnings for Compulsive Behaviors
Drug-makers updated the label on Abilify to include warnings about “pathological gambling” in Europe in 2012 and in Canada in 2015, but not in the U.S. until May 2016. That was when the FDA ordered drug-makers to warn consumers about impulse-control disorders that can cause uncontrollable urges to gamble, eat, shop, and have sex.
What is the problem?
The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a class action law firm in Texas, but our attorneys are not currently filing a Rexulti class action. Instead, we are investigating individual lawsuits for people who had gambling side effects and increased compulsive behaviors.
About Class actions
Class actions are ideal when a lot of people have similar legal claims, such as seeking a refund. One person files a lawsuit on behalf of everyone who was injured. If compensation is awarded, everyone who joins the class action is eligible to share the settlement or jury payout.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action
Class actions can have disadvantages for individual who were seriously injured by defective medications. They may have to accept a “low-ball” settlement or massive attorneys’ fees.
Instead of a class action, our attorneys are investigating individual lawsuits on behalf of people who were injured by Rexulti side effects. We are concerned that drug-makers may not have adequately warned about the risk of compulsive behaviors or addiction to gambling.
