Rage, Anger, and those damn Mood Swings - Help!

Posted by Greg on July 24, 2000, at 9:00:37

Hi all,

I posted a thread a few weeks back about some real bad depression I was having (the train incident). I've been feeling a little better, but still off balance. I have been experiencing periods of rage, anger and intense mood swings. Yesterday I spent an hour in my garage hitting the punching bag (the big bag), to the point where my knuckles were bleeding. I got a weird sensation of satisfaction from this, although this am I'm simply feeling pain. I'm snapping at people, getting angry over things I shouldn't be, feeling socially anxious and my tolerance is at an all time low.

I see my pdoc at 3:15pm (Cailfornia time) today. I'd like to discuss a change in meds and possibly a return to therapy for awhile anyway. I know some of you deal with these problems and would like to have some suggestions to talk over with my doc.

I am currently taking Prozac (20mgs twice daily), Xanax (1/2 to 1mg as needed), and Ambien (10mgs at bedtime) for insomnia. I've taken Effexor, Wellbutrin, and Neurontin as well.

This is getting out of control for me and I don't like it, and I definitely don't like me! My friends and family aren't exactly thrilled either... Mood swings are the worst, one minute happy as a clam, the next, the devil in blue jeans and tennis shoes! I am however getting very good at apologizing to people....Any help and suggestions you can give me would, as always, be appreciated.
