... years and didn't find out about the possible connection with my medication until recently when I was searching online for a cheaper source for my prescriptions. Has anyone else been experiencing this?
I hVe similar issues but, have not been put on any medicine for it. I didn't know anything even existed that could help with compulsive shopping. I would love to hear what others say. I am currently being treated for Schizoaffective disorder and before that jBipolar along with Manic shopping sprees.
Yes, and my freedom was found in a recovery group. This is an addiction (at least it was for me and the research in the group confirmed it). A compulsive event, rooted in escape self-esteem (low), identity, etc.
Cutting of the drug can be disastrous when the addiction is chemical, when the drug is credit, or just the availability of disposable funds the cut-off is a crash course in behavior modification, over time, a better appreciation for having less, turning the spending into giving, and making the lives of others who have so little, even the essentials, yielded a higher high, a sense of purpose and significance that nothing else could ever replace. Compulsion redirected.
Hope that sharing angle helps a bit.
