Assistance is available at the hands of this Fort Lauderdale, Florida Abilify Lawyer. Abilify is an antipsychotic drug. It is used to treat schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and depression.
Doctors began prescribing the drug in the United States in 2002. It was developed by Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. Bristol-Myers Squibb agreed with Otsuka to work on the drug together and market it.
Unfortunately, Abilify has several catastrophic consequences. Amongst these is compulsivity. People who take abilify can become extremely compulsive. For example, people who take Abilify can easily become compulsive gamblers. Compulsive gambling can, in turn, lead to the destruction of the gambler’s life in the form of job loss, divorce, bankruptcy, crime and sometimes suicide.
Abilify causes compulsivity by altering the levels of dopamine in the body. It has long been known that altered levels on dopamine can lead to compulsivity. It can also impair the brain’s decision-making ability, which can be extremely destructive in combination with compulsive behavior.
