  • Sep 27 2013: Yes, we have drugs to "control" nearly anything. Doesn't mean that it's a good idea to use them.
    • Sep 27 2013: Can you name the drug? What are the side effects? Wat if someone gets addicted to the drug itself?

        Sep 27 2013: Look at this article from Wikipedia.
        It explains that Impulse control disorders have two treatment options: psychosocial and pharmacological.

        Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and you will see the name of the drugs.

        You can then google the drug name and research it yourself.
