Hi, Elizabeth! The unipolar depression with "anger attacks" sounds interesting, although I'm not quite sure what an "anger attack" would be. I think possibly not. I will just sometimes have such a reaction to something that I have to do or say SOMETHING to release the tension. Nothing too drastic, though. It's just like jumping over an imaginary line, even when I shouldn't be feeling too much under attack or defensive. Anyway, I am on lithium, levoxyl (to boost thyroid, rx'd by pdoc) and, since December, gabapentin (Neurontin), due to a possible start of a depression. It's always hard to tell what helps a condition, or whether time has helped, but I haven't had a sudden, intense reaction in quite awhile, so possibly the meds have gradually helped. I am more prone to depression than the anger, as you might be able to tell from the meds, but it is nice not to feel I may jeopardize a job or something by an inappropriate reaction. Again, it is not like a rage or anything that severe, just an intense reaction where I almost feel removed from myself and I need to do or say SOMETHING to release the tension. I don't know if this makes sense at all...

How are you doing and have you found others who you can relate to, even though you are in the infamous "NOS" category?
