Be Aware that Abilify is Linked to Uncontrollable Gambling and Hypersexuality

New warnings will link aripiprazole (Abilify, etc) to a higher risk of impulse-control behaviors...gambling, binge eating, etc.

The risk appears higher with aripiprazole than other atypicals...likely because aripiprazole is a partial dopamine agonist.
