Feelings of Anger after weening off of Xanax and Zoloft?

I get incredibly agitated lately. I feel like I could bite off my hubbys head or anyone who rubs me the wrong way....Saying something really off the wall.

I noticed this to be most apparent since I have been off of Zoloft 3 weeks today YAHOOOOO and weening off Ambien and Xanax.

When does this go away...or is it me? I hope you can share some insight. I could be known as a "witch on wheels".

HELP!

Re: Feelings of Anger after weening off of Xanax and Zoloft?

hi, i dont know about the meds ur on, but i do know that when i came off prozac i was soooo angry and mean to every one and it didnt go away in 2 months so i went back on prozac and now im fine again, so it kind of worried me a lot cos im not mean!!! i think it was the depression coming out in different ways. hopefully with u it will go away when ur off all the meds

Good luck

Brett

Re: Feelings of Anger after weening off of Xanax and Zoloft?

Why do you think it would cause anger? I just can't go back on the Zoloft...I have come so far...less zaps...no panic attacks....

I hope 2 months can work for me....I'd even wait 4!

Re: Feelings of Anger after weening off of Xanax and Zoloft?

a lot of people ive spoken to say depression can cause anger in people especially men etc. i find i get angry because i dont know why im so sad all the time, i dont even mean to do it, i just flip and get aggressive or mean etc. i hated it so i had to go back on the meds and in a week i was fine in that respect again!!!!


and congrats for coming off ur meds i wish i could! keep it up and good luck

I've been off Effexor for 5 months now. I was soooo angry in the beginning... somewhere between 3 and 4 months off it started subsiding. Something to do with the withdrawal and your brain readjusting.

Hang in there

Re: Feelings of Anger after weening off of Xanax and Zoloft?

I've been trying for the last two weeks to taper off of Zoloft, and I've been extremely angry and agitated. I think it is the withdrawl. I hope it gets better soon or my whole family is going to hate me.
Good luck to you.

Re: Feelings of Anger after weening off of Xanax and Zoloft?

Thank goodness I am not the only one weening off the meds! And there is hope...Maybe 2 months from now Yikes for the hubby.......I am sticking to my guns, I am going to get off the meds!

Xanax helps me sleep so i am not ready for that yet..Been on it for 4.5 months now....Usually .25-.50 per day.

I would hate to be near me when i decide that's it for this med also!

Thanks for your support! You have been wonderful!
