I usually see my normal psychiatrist but he's not open on

Customer Question

Hello. I usually see my normal psychiatrist but he's not open on Sunday's and I started a new medication and it's causing severe side effects
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: Buspirone. It's been working wonders for my anxiety but it's causing extreme anger outburst to the point where I almost hurt my fiancé because I get so angry
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?
Customer: I just started the medication on the 21st 10mg 3 times daily. Usually when my fiancé says something I don't like I get very angry, more angry then usually and throw anger fits which I have never done before. Last night I ripped up all the pictures of us and threw water at him and it's usually when he says things that make me feel like I'm a failure when I have never done these Hobbs before
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the psychologist should know?
Customer: I have borderline personality, PTSD from seeing my ex boyfriend dead in his room from a heroine over dose, social and generalized anxiety, depression, and bipolar 1 or 2 I'm not sure of the difference but the one that isn't as bad
