I am a woman in my early 40's and diabetic. I go through these episodes of anger and rage. I can't even look at the people I love without screaming out profanities if they say a word to me or just look at me the wrong way. I hate myself for it and hate myself while it's happening. I'm well aware but can't stop it! I don't know what to do. I was put on cypralex and the dosage was knocked up to 30mg. After 4 months of being on the med I forgot to refill the prescription and went through withdrawl. (which I had no idea would happen either never being on meds other than diabetic meds) I was then up to 30mg and saw a doctor in a walk in and went on 10 mg. Maybe that was a big mistake? Not sure. I was trying to ween myself off.
So now I've been taking 10 mg for the last two months and I am going through episodes of high stress, and anger.
Not sure what to do next. Is there another med I should be taking along with this one? Is something triggering the other? I seriously want to hide away and be away from everyone but at the same time I want to know people still love me. I am such a wonderful human being normally with a big heart....and cannot understand why this is happening to me. I've had this on and off for years! Since my twenties.
Any advice or personal stories to be shared? I love to hear them.
Thanks so much.
