Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
I first want to make it very clear that I am not an MD. I am a Ph.D. but I want to tell you about some patients of mine on medication. I have had two adult patients who were so very impulsive and had severe anger management problems. One of the men had his doctor put him on Wellbutrin. It helped him enormously. Another time I received a referral to see a couple who were referred to me by their internist because the woman couldn't take it anymore and was ready to break up with her boyfriend. The boyfriend had real impulse control and anger management issues. I remembered what happened with the first patient and so suggested to them to tell his doctor about putting him on wellbutrin. The MD did put him on that. To this day ( this happened years ago), I still get Christmas cards thanking me for saving their relationship. I didn't. The wellbutrin did. So, again, I am not a physician, cannot prescribe meds but if I were you I would bring this up with your doctor. See what he/she says.
