else have this problem. It does seem to help with his anxiety and paranoia, but I am not sure sitting at home listening to the radio all day (no lie) is good for him. He seems to think it is working wonderful.
My husband is on this for anger and anxiety and has since not wanted to leave the house. Anyone?

My apologies, my husband recently started taking Trileptal. He has had progress. He also gets angry when in public. He thinks most people want to start something with him and is always on the defense. This has gone down some with the medicine, but I am afraid because he won't leave the house unless he is going to work. He won't leave to go to the store, eat, or any of the normal things he used to do (gunrange, golf, or baseball games). Thanks so much for the feedback.
You fail to say if he was on any Medication? I suffer the same type of anxiety as you talked about. The anger comes from his anxiety, he feels traped between doing something and not.It can get real bad with me and I will snap at my wife.anxiety makes your mind race and depression makes you feel unwanted.
I want to go to my Grandsons ball games,
but the people yelling make me nervase, and a little touchy, or on edge. They yell mean things at the referees and the kids, well it makes me mad.
I feel like kicking someone's asses. So I don't go very often.
I do take a Anti-Depressant and Clonazepam to treat my high anxiety, which works very well for me.
Hope I can be some help? I know what he's going through and it's terrible and you feel like crawing in a hole and closing out the world.
Tell him there is hope, and help help. Try and get an appointment to see a Psychiatrist if he can. There is no shame in having a problem and needing help, but it is ashame if he does not try to get help, and have a happier life.
Good luck and God does care.
