I don't know if it has been specifically reported as causing uncontrolled gambling but it can cause manic behaviors, impaired thinking and judgement. I would think uncontrolled gambling could possibly fall under those catigories. Talk to your prescribing healthcare professional if this has become a problem while taking this medicine.

Yes, it has been linked to compulsive gambling. Search Google for "aripiprazole" AND "gambling". There is much scientific research available.
I also became a compulsive gambler after taking Abilify (Aripiprazole). I have done a lot of research on this medication and am now compiling a list of individuals who have also became compulsive gamblers due to taking Abilify.
