images-1-2

The attorneys at Coxwell & Associates, PLLC are currently investigating and accepting claims for young people who were prescribed the antipsychotic drug Abilify (aripiprazole). Abilify was developed by a Japenese pharmaceutical company and is marketed in the United States by Bristol-Meyers Squibb.
Abilify was originally prescribed for treatment of schizophrenia but since 2002 it has been approved for bipolar conditions, depression, irritability from autism, and adolescent bipolar and schizophrenia. Major information came forward on this drug in 2007 when Bristol-Myers Squibb paid over $525 million to settle a case brought by the Department of Justice charging that the Drug Company illegally marketed Abilify to children and geriatric patients.

Studies have confirmed the link between antipsychotic drugs given to kids and the Type to Diabetes in adults. One study showed that the increased risk of developing Diabetes was 7.72 times above normal. That might not sound like a big number to some people but in the medical and scientific field it is very significant. The elevated risks can remain even a year after ending the medication.
A diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes means a life time of insulin injections and a total restructuring of a person’s lifestyle. Diabetes can lead to blood vessel damage, ulcers that will not heal, blindness, and in some cases amputations. There are other qualify of life problems like heart disease, stroke, sexual dysfunction, pregnancy complications and numbness. Life expectancy can also be reduced 20 years not to mention the seriously increased health care costs.
