It Only Took 9 Years!
June 21, 2017 3:30pm CST
Years ago I had an experience with Abilify that almost sent me to gambling even though I was in recovery from my addiction. In an attempt to stop the increasing urge I asked for a different medication, that new medication (Pristiq), which I have been on for 9 years. Because of a recent problem getting that medication ordered through a patient assistance program, I not only proved a point about the medicine but may have finally gotten through to the Pfizer that the medication has applications for Compulsive Gambling. I just finished talking to someone on the phone about it. I am now hopeful that Pristiq will be approved for helping others with A Gambling Addiction! As I said in the title "It only took me 9 Years" to get through to someone!
