Last week, Aaron opened up about his mental health in an episode of The Doctors.

The Crush On You singer revealed his numerous mental health diagnoses and brought out his prescribed medications during an appearance on the show.

“The official diagnosis is that I suffer from multiple personality disorder, schizophrenia, acute anxiety. I’m manic depressive,” Carter shared. “I’m prescribed to Xanax, Seroquel, gabapentin, hydroxyzine, trazodone, omeprazole.”

Carter held up a bag of prescription drugs for Dr. Travis Stork and his co-host Dr. Judy Ho to see. He wanted viewers to see the amount of medication he has to take.

“This is my reality … hi,” he said.

“I haven’t taken any opioids,” he shared before correcting himself. “Oh no, no. I did. I got my teeth done, I got six crowns so I had to take hydrocodone.”

Carter previously appeared on an episode of The Doctors in 2017, where he opened up about his health issues.

The singer addressed rumours regarding his thin appearance during a radio show in August 2017 and said the rumours would be put to rest once people watched his appearance on The Doctors.
