Hi CeeCee,

I think you should definitely try getting on a mood stabalizer. I hear neurontin(gabapentin) is a good one to try(try looking it up in psychopharmachology tips). I'm currently on it now. I'm also on effexor 150 mg. IT's too soon to tell if it is working for me or not, as it has only been three days. Also if the irrability is really unbearable, perhaps you can try an anti-psychotic like risperdal or zyprexa. However it is probably not the best path to go longterm. Risperdal did help my agitation and irritability but at the cost of causing may also try a benzo like xanax or klonopin -i'd try that before i'd try an anti-psychotic. If your doctor is not helpful and you cannot change doctors, then get as educated as you can about your illness and the availble treatments. Then relay this information to your doctor in a convincing way so that you can begin to try different medications. Trial and error is the only way you will find what works for you. Sorry you are having so many difficulties.
