Specialty required: It is very important to ask for a consultation with a clinician. If you have already done this, your doctor must know the situation to discard side effects of any medication. Sometimes, an addiction is just the manifestation of something deeper that must be treated. I encourage you to continue looking for help and answers, and don't give up!
