In February 2018 FDA approved some label changes for Rexulti for the addition of warnings about pathological gambling and other compulsive behaviors.
Here is some of the text which was added to the Warnings and Precautions section of the Rexulti drug label:
5.7 Pathological Gambling and Other Compulsive Behaviors
Post-marketing case reports suggest that patients can experience intense urges, particularly for gambling, and the inability to control these urges while taking REXULTI. Other compulsive urges, reported less frequently, include: sexual urges, shopping, eating or binge eating, and other impulsive or compulsive behaviors…. In some cases, although not all, urges were reported to have stopped when the dose was reduced or the medication was discontinued. Compulsive behaviors may result in harm to the patient and others if not recognized….
Our law firm is investigating possible products liability lawsuits against the responsible drug companies for people who have experienced compulsive gambling behaviors while using Rexulti. Those cases would involve one or more of the following consequences: personal debt; bankruptcy; home foreclosure; divorce; unemployment; emotional trauma; and, damaged reputation.
