Abilify causes compulsiveg gambling!

I started taking abilify with lorazepam on 1st april and on 14 th april i stopped lorazepam and was discharged. On 3rd of may i opened a pokerstars account and wanted to deposit 1000$ but thankfully the bank declined the transaction and I left without paying any money. Do pay attention from abilify it has ugly side effects. this all happened in 2017

I think it just depends on the person. I have been on abilify for like 10 months or more now and I have not had any gambling issues. I have heard stories from others though who have gone down that path.

It’s different for everyone. My appetite was increased at 15mg and reverted to almost normal at 10mg.
