Thanks... and please know that responding with additional information doesn't cost you anything - it just helps us to give you better service.
Thanks for clarifying.
Can you expect further bursts of uncontrollable rage? Well, I can't predict that it absolutely would happen, but I would be really surprised if this episode was the only one that would happen.
Have I hear or read about people having rage/hostility after mixing booze, xanax, (and other medications)? Yes... absolutely.
While it would be inappropriate (and unethical) to diagnose someone over the internet (through a third party), I have significant concerns about your girlfriend's substance use patterns. There are a number of warning signs that may suggest she has a serious problem with drugs and/or alcohol.
She would be best served by coming clean with her doctor and letting him/her know about her drug and alcohol use. The physician can recommend appropriate mental health and/or medical treatment for her.
For your safety, in the future, if your GF becomes this violent again, I would encourage you to:
- call the police <or>
- take her to an emergency room for treatment.
...this is for your own safety as well as her safety.
Please understand, as I believe you do, her behavior is *not* typical and may very warrant attention by the medical and mental health community.
I hope this helps.
