Will these tablets help in quitting marijuana?

I am a patient of schizotypal disorder as diagnosed by my doctor and taking aripiprazole 20 mg tab daily since last 3 to 4 years. I am also on to smoking marizuana since last 10 years or so. I am not able to quit marizuana smoking. I got married last year and my wife is very adamant that I must quit it. She is very much possesive and terats me like a child as to when i should get up, or brush or bathe or cloth etc but I dislike it very much. We keep quarelling due to this. And I become very much determined to keep on smoking marizuana.I have been prescribed my physcian Escitalopram + Etizolam combination of Tab and Levosulpride+ Rabeprazole combination of drug to be taken one tab each before meal in the night. I am feeling very much sleepy. Will it help me in quitting addiction.

Marijuana dependence is more psychological than physical.though these medications can help but they are not specific for this.Visiting an expert who can help you with non pharmacological way to handle this situation will be really useful.If you want to keep on smoking and have no motivation to leave the medications won't be of much use.
