The irritability and anger issues may be untreated mania. You're looking for an agent that will calm you down and round those edges. You mention you add Trileptal to calm things a little and that works but you get unwanted side effects. I know of a couple of agents that might work to treat your slight mania like Trileptal:

Keppra - has been shown to be an effective mood stabilizer and has especially strong anti-manic effects. Also has some anxiolytic properties.

Zonegran - Can be useful as a mood stabilizer, but especially useful in treating bipolar depression.

Verapamil - High doses of this calcium channel blocker have shown to have mood stabilizing properties.

Nimodipine - may have particular benefits for those diagnostic subclasses of bipolar disorder most resistant to therapy, e.g., ultra-rapid-cycling bipolars and brief recurrent depressions.

These agents may help to take the edge off. You mentioned in the past Zyprexa was very helpful for you. It wouldn't hurt to combine the Geodon with the Zyprexa in a low dose.
