> Right now I am on Risperdal, which is very effective for feelings of anger and frustration. However, I feel it causes numbing of emotions and ability to feel pleasure. I should state that my anger stems from unresolved fears and anxieties. Is there any med that that is very effective for anger attacks, but does not cause numbed emotions?

I would look for studies involving Tegretol (carbamazepine) or Trileptal (oxcarbazepine). These two drugs are molecular cousins, and may have similar efficacy However, Trileptal has reduced psychiatric and physical side effects.

When Zoloft first came out, it was noted to have anti-aggression effects. From what I can see Zoloft seems to have less propensity for producing a numbing effect among the SSRIs.

If it were me, with what you are looking to accomplish, I would try Trileptal first.
