I started taking Lexapro 6 months ago and for the first 3 months was wonderful. Then I started to get into these manic Anger episodes... Nothing physical just verbally. I would get angry at anything and everything and I was unable to make it stop. Sometimes days on end in complete rage. I have weaned myself off the Lexapro... Will all SSRI's cause this? Would switching to a different SSRI and then maybe adding Xanax help? I feel like this will never get better.
You may have had an uncommon side effect to Lexapro. If you are bi-polar and not on a mood stabilizer this could happen. I only say this because you said "manic Anger episodes".
Best to talk to your doctor about your symptoms and possible options.
