Abilify Compulsive Behavior Lawsuits

In 2007, Abilify drug manufacturer, Bristol-Myers Squibb, reached a $515 million settlement with the Justice Department for improperly marketing Abilify in children between 2002-2005.

The agreement resolved a broad array of civil allegations involving their drug marketing and pricing practices.

According to the agreement, BMS agreed to pay $328 million to the federal government, as well as over $187 million to Medicaid participating states, and $124,000 to certain Public Health Service entities.

“The integrity of our health care system rests on physicians being able to make decisions based on the best interests of their patients,” former Acting Attorney General Peter D. Keisler said in a statement. “This settlement reflects the Justice Department’s strong commitment to holding drug companies accountable for devising and implementing fraudulent marketing and pricing schemes that undermine that decision-making process at the expense of federal health care programs for the poor and the elderly.”

The government alleged that Bristol-Myers Squibb knowingly and willfully paid illegal remuneration to physicians and other health care providers to induce them to purchase BMS drugs from 2000-2003. The government also alleged the drug manufacturer knowingly promoted the sale and use of Abilify, an atypical antipsychotic drug, for pediatric use and to treat dementia-related psychosis, both “off-label” uses, from 2002 through the end of 2005,

In addition, a product liability lawsuit was recently filed by a 21-year-old woman, alleging she developed Type II diabetes when she was 15 years old due to side effects of Abilify. The complaint was reportedly filed in the Supreme Court of New York for New York City, naming Bristol-Myers Squibb and Otsuka American Pharmaceutical Inc. as defendants.
