Efraim Diveroli, portrayed by Jonah Hill in the 2016 movie “War Dogs,” is filing a federal lawsuit against several pharmaceutical companies, claiming Abilify caused severe addictions.

Diveroli and two friends from Miami had a military arms-dealing scheme that’s the focus of “War Dogs.” Federal prosecutors have charged Diveroli and his associates with 71 counts of fraud and conspiracy.

According to the Miami New Times, Diveroli claims that after taking Abilify he “began compulsively gambling, spending, and experiencing hypersexuality.”

Diveroli’s Abilify lawsuit names Bristol-Myers Squibb, Otsuka Pharmaceutical, and Otsuka America as defendants.

Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2002, Abilify (aripiprazole) is a top-selling drug prescribed to treat depression and symptoms of psychotic conditions, including schizophrenia and manic depression. The drug is classified as an atypical antipsychotic.

Elderly consumers who took Abilify to combat symptoms of dementia were perhaps the most effected of all demographics who suffered Abilify-related complications. As drug use continued, it was discovered that use of Abilify to combat dementia actually increased the risk of death for those consumers.

Abilify has been shown to cause compulsive behaviors such as gambling, spending, and eating.
