Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. personality disorders are common with ADD and use or aripiprazole can exacerbate too. Consult a psychiatrist and let them help. Psychotherapy sessions for mood variation would be necessary too.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
