Hello, i'm just wondering if anybody else has Bi Polar, and think it triggered gambling addiction?

I have currently got a appointment with a Psychiatrist next week, Although i haven't been diagnosed with bi polar, i have many symptoms.

My gambling has got worse over the past weeks, I've sold items to fund my problem etc, just today i spent around 55 pounds on stupid Lottery Tickets, it's really depressing, hopefully my appointment will shed more light on my problems and arrange a plan to stop this awful addiction.

I have bipolar but it was actually caused by medication. Do you take aripriprazole by any chance?
