Rage disorder is very common in Lyme disease. It even has a name. Lyme Rage. You can calm it down with a variety of meds and herbs. But it takes experimentation to find out which ones work for you satisfactorily without intolerable side effects.

Lyme is epidemic. Most sick patients never recall a tick bite or a rash and erroneous testing is the norm. Most psychiatric patients have no idea what a huge role lyme plays in psychiatry.

I'm not guessing you have lyme. Though you very well might. Science says your odds are 3 out of 10, my doctors say your odds are 9 out 10. Take your pic. That's a lot of people with lyme who don't know they have lyme and are treating it as psychiatric instead. I don't know you, don't know your symptoms, never examined you, never questioned you, and don't know your history. Only that there is a lot of rage you would like to see go away. And that while many people consider rage and irritation to be unexplained mysteries, I don't.

"What every Mental Health Specialist should know about psychiatry and lyme and tick born illnesses"...most don't know any of this.

Calming it down is only the first part of a 2 step process. The second step is to remove the thing that is causing it all in the first place. Which probably falls within the realm of systemic inflammation, brain inflammation and unknown toxicity. We don't have good enough testing to figure any of that out. We have to use educated guesses, hunches, instincts and anecdotal evidence to guide our decisions. In the end, everything new we do is an experiment.

I've seen unexplained rage in several people throughout my life that cleared up with antibiotics for Lyme. That takes a skilled doctor with extracurricular training from I.L.A.D.S. to make the diagnosis and effectively treat. They are called Lyme Literate Medical Doctors (LLMDs) and they often improve patients who have been poorly managed by more mainstream doctors.

An LLMD brought me to remission from 20 years of treatment resistant depression, bipolar, schizoaffective disorder and anxiety/rage/irritation. The psych drugs helped cut the edge up until that time, but it was antibiotics and herbs that ultimately did the work, not the psych meds. Those are merely for immediate symptoms, not for a cure.

Even without a lyme diagnosis, or even with skepticism that is has anything to do with lyme, you can still attack the inflammation and toxicity with herbs and supplements. That alone should help noticeably.

Whether any particular med will work for you or not is anybody's guess.
