Common Questions and Answers about Abilify and gambling


Avatar m tn There's been a few changes, first off there was occasional Meth use, which angered me even more after finding out it was the initial trigger, when he felt he was overwhelmed and couldn't focus he was put on Vyvance starting at 20mg working up to 60mg taken in the morning where is now and 20mg Abilify nightly. But The Abilify isn't working anymore at all!
198419 tn?1360245956 There were some toilet paper purchases from Walmart online as well but mostly the debt is due to this 'gambling.' Tried Abilify in conjunction with celexa to try and curb the impulsivity but even half a tab of Abilify gives me insomnia. Anyone else have any luck with treating disinhibition and impulsivity? God bless all my fellow MSers and their own loved ones!
585414 tn?1288944902 I am addicted to gambling and seem to never ever look at the consequences of anything. I cannot sustain relationships or jobs and mostly live from hour to hour and am constantly self absorbed. I have had several suicide attempts in my 20's but had always been drinking and was self harming from in my teens to my early forties though I hid it well. That has stopped though I still get the urge to cut when I am angry. I am truly exhausted now.

Avatar f tn I get paranoid easily, then go to feeling indestructible, like i could take on an entire gang by myself. I also start spending a lot, and more then once in the past I have gotten into trouble gambling. The worst is my hyper sexuality. I recently went off my medication several months ago and spiraled into a manic phase and took out all this sexual energy and frustration on others.
901137 tn?1267629789 have you exhasted all pharmological treatment options including augmentation regimes with differing courses of anti-depressants? what about psychological therapy such as CBT in order to change perhaps how you see yourself and experience the world around you. Perhaps you could access this through ypur health centre as you may not need to be referred to specialist services.
202665 tn?1248810333 I think the first thing you need to do is take a deep breath and accept that this happened and you need help and then ask for it. As to telling your spouse, its going to be a time thin - until you understand yourself this is something which you need to place to the side a bit - telling your spouse now at this stage would I suspect damage or destroy a relationship when you are at a fragile place. Definetly a therapist here, if you do not have one get one, they are invaluable resources.
Avatar m tn I'd lie on the floor and rock for between a few minutes up to 6 hours or more. I'd rock on the floor and day dream and it seems that the rocking motion would help me day dream and I'd end up in almost in a trance. It completly messed up my education... instead of studying I'd body rock and dream whenever possible.... I mean I was totaly addicted to it, it may seam strange but it got worse from childhood.
