As you may know from an Abilify TV ad, the antidepressant drug can cause diabetes in children. Such a TV commercial also may have alerted you that an Abilify lawyer can seek financial compensation for victims via Abilify lawsuits.
Whether you saw such a television ad from our law firm or not, we stand ready to help you
with an Abilify lawsuit if a child in your family suffered diabetes after taking antidepressant drug Abilify.
An Abilify lawyer can pursue justice by means of an Abilify class action lawsuit, or an individual Abilify suit against the defective drug’s manufacturer, Bristol-Myers Squibb.
As the TV advertisement you saw may have revealed, the antipsychotic and antidepressant drug can cause a number of Abilify side effects, including diabetes in young children. Signs of the Abilify side effect diabetes include heightened thirst, elevated blood sugar, excessive hunger, increased urination and weight gain.
An Abilify television commercial also may have revealed to you that legal actions are available for such victims. Indeed, an Abilify lawyer can seek economic recovery for victims’ pain, suffering and medical expenses.
Already, Abilify lawsuits have prevailed against Bristol-Myers Squibb. The drug’s manufacturer settled a 2007 Abilify lawsuit by whistleblowers and by the U.S. Department of Justice for a total of $515 million. This Abilify lawsuit concerned the company paying kickbacks to physicians to get them to prescribe Abilify.
Abilify was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2002 to treat schizophrenia; approved in 2004 to treat bipolar disorder; and approved in 2007 to treat major depressive disorder. However, the FDA has learned that Abilify — with generic drug aripiprazole — can cause metabolic disorders such as diabetes, as well as hyperglycemia, which means excess sugar.
As an Abilify TV ad may have noted, particularly at risk of diabetes after using Abilify are young children.
