Rexulti and Compulsive Behaviors
Rexulti (brexpiprazole) is an antipsychotic medication prescribed for the treatment of schizophrenia. It is also prescribed for depression, usually as an augmentation to existing treatment.
Recently, patients have come forward with complaints related to the drug. Specifically, these are reports that the drug is causing compulsive behavior, including uncontrollable urges related to:
- Sex/hyper-sexual behavior
When prescribed a medication, you expect that it will help you. You rely on your doctor to inform you of the risk of side effects and complications, and then do what you can to mitigate those risks. But when a drug manufacturer does not properly disclose the risks, there's no way you can make an informed decision about taking the drug.
People who experience dangerous compulsion may have a claim to make against the manufacturer. These claims may be based on failure to warn, improper labeling or similar issues. Rely on our attorneys to determine if you have a claim.
Rexulti was approved by the FDA in 2015. It is chemically similar to another drug, Abilify, which has also been linked to the risk of compulsive behavior.
What To Do If You Think You Have a Claim
Call our attorneys if you experienced compulsion like that described above, after you started taking Rexulti. The risk of these behaviors is serious. Gambling, spending and shoplifting can have life-altering consequences, such as financial ruin or criminal prosecution. These behaviors can upend relationships with a spouse, family and friends. In some cases, the compulsion toward certain behaviors can affect your performance at the workplace.
If you have found yourself in these types of situations, you may have a case. We can determine what your options are for pursuing justice.
