I am a compulsive liar. I exaggerate everything. How can I stop? It just started after my dad died a year ago. What caused this change? Is it serious

Can someone lying for a long period of time to a child about who their biological father is cause the child to become a compulsive liar?

Adults often tell "white lies" to avoid an interaction, ie, "Tell them I'm taking an nap and can't talk." Thirdly, children often lie to avoid consequences, ie, why tell the truth if that leads to punsihment Also, it depends on whether the child is aware of the truth or falsehood of his parentage. ...Read more

Can a bad reaction to Abilify (aripiprazole) cause paranoid thinking and obsessive/compulsive type behavior? My issues started around the time I started Abilify (aripiprazole)

Can a bad reaction to Abilify (aripiprazole) cause paranoid thinking and obsessive/compulsive type behavior? My issues started around the time I started Abilify (aripiprazole)

Only one way to know: It seems self-evident to me, but I guess not to others. Don't do this without your doctor's collaboration. Really knowing is a 2-step process. 1) Stop the Abilify (aripiprazole) & see if the bad stuff goes away. 2) If it does, restart Abilify (aripiprazole) & see if it comes back. Step 2 is important for drugs e.g. for diabetes, blood pressure, etc. For psych meds, step 2 is often not necessary or even desirable. ...Read more

Help please! what drugs are good for anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorders that won't cause weight gain?

That's a tough one.: Bezodiazepines dont cause weight gain, work well but can be addicting so use cautiously. Hydroxyzine (vistaril) and Buspirone (buspar) are minimally effective & don't cause weight gain they deal mostly with anxiety & may help OCD some.
