Hi Elaine. Yup, that's the answer I was interested in. :-)

A diagnosis of bipolar without anything resembling manic or hypomanic episodes seems a bit odd to say the least. There is such a thing as dysphoric mania or hypomania, in which a person feels very irritable rather than euphoric. That doesn't sound like what you're describing, though.

I seem to recall reading an article somewhere or other about depression (unipolar) with "anger attacks" (similar to panic attacks, with the same kind of autonomic symptoms).

I've also heard of cases in which "rages" turned out to be complex partial seizures and were successfully treated with AEDs.

What sort of meds are you using, and are you having any luck?
