New Warning Label for Anti-Psychotic Drugs

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Food and Drug Administration has issued a warning about the anti-psychotic drug Aripiprazole, sold under the brand names Abilify and Aristada.

Regulators say that in rare cases,  the drug may lead to uncontrollable urges to gamble, shop, binge eat, or even sexual urges.

Ironically, the drugs are often prescribed for bipolar disorder.

The new warning labels are coming soon.
