I had fits of rage over minor things (never at others) like dropping things, or things that are normally minor stress in my line of work. It may or may not be a coincidence but it seems to have started about the time I started taking a generic version of lipitor which is Atorvastatin. And my blood pressure went up about that time. So I started taking a blood pressure med soon after that which is Atenolol.
My doctor has me off of the statin drug to see if that's it and it seems I am better but still irritable but no where near as much. Could be psychological too.
Could be be the Atenolol too although the drug is actually used to calm people down other than for blood pressure. However my doctor says sometimes drugs have an opposite effect in some people.
Now I'm dealing with GERD for some reason. I stopped drinking coffee and carbonated drinks but it's lingering.
