In reply to Drugs for Rages, in context of mood disorder, posted by BygoneBeSpade on September 13, 2013, at 11:49:36

Hello. I touched on the aggression topic with my pdoc and he's of the opinion that due to my fine response to risperidone and the type of anger that I have, acute mental agitation and physical agitation with destroying stuff out of frustration is certainly due to excess dopamine and even though I do not have psychotic symptoms, I should be taking dopamine antagonists for the anger. I'm not sure. My question is can it be said for certain that such aggression is dopamine related? Also, iloperidone and aripiprazole made me very raging also? Is that a normal response to these drugs if he's correct? It is true though that I do not understand this rage and the constant irritation in my head. I certainly have no reason to be angry. Maybe the violent childhood situation in my house affected my brain? He says he's certain that though I have a mood disorder of depression, the anger comes from excess dopamine and not any sort of mania. (It's funny how the doc can tell so much after just a few visits). Thanks.
