He is taking numerous prescription medications including Xanax, Seroquel, Gabapentin, Hydroxyzine, Trazodone and more. The singer says when he has gone off his meds, he has spiraled into a severe depression and says he even contemplated jumping off a building.
"I don't want to be on them," he says of his medications."I don't want to take 16 pills a day, but I have to."
Sitting down with Dr. Travis Stork and clinical psychologist Dr. Judy Ho, the singer covers a wide range of topics, including:
His Estranged Relationship with Brother Nick Carter: "After going to rehab, Nick didn't come, my mom didn't come. Nobody came. I get a Tweet, a public Tweet from my brother saying, if you need any help with rehab, I'm here. You live in Las Vegas, you're 3 hours away. Hop your a** in a f****** car and get here. Come see your brother, your little brother that you care about. (Aaron addressing brother Nick directly) You need to make amends to me. You need to apologize to me. I haven't even met my nephew!"
Why He Owns So Many Guns, Including Assualt Rifles: Aaron explains he has a gun license and has inherited hundreds of curio and relic firearms from his father and in order to donate them he says he needs a gun license. He also tells The Doctors he is an avid supporter of the right to bear arms and has never had a felony and any welfare checks placed on him have been cleared by authorities.
The Reason He Takes on His Online Bullies: "Those people are hurting... I know if someone comes and bullies me, that they're hurting inside and I want to talk to them and I want to help them... I'm not going to ignore them, they're hurting too." He adds, "Stop ignoring a hater and a bully, you're making the world worse."
Why He's Being Bullied More Now Than Ever: Aaron says people on social media constantly hurl insults at him and suggest he's on drugs and close to death. "The bullying started to get worse in the last 2 years, since I have been clean, sober, and I've started making millions of dollars again."
