Questions Related to Topamac

I'm suffering from Epilepsy (mainly GTCs) from last 12 years. Currently on Multiple AEDs 1. Topamac 400mg/day, 2. Encorate Chrono 800mg/day, 3. Lonazep 2mg/day. My present problem is I have some onset of agitation and anger and loss my control on my self. Previously I was suggested Quel (quetiapine) 25mg (OD.HS) for anger, but it did not work, recently my Neurologist prescribed me Zolfresh 5mg (OD.HS). Zolfresh reduced my agitation and anger but increased my sleep. My question is whether Anger is normal in Epilepsy and how to overcome this anger. Here to mention that I practice meditation regularly.
Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
Psychiatrist
Zolpidem is a sleep inducer with high addictive potential. If agitation and anger are not a part of your personality, the genesis of it needs to be explored and understood. It may happen in depression, anxiety, mood disorders, substance use disorders, psychotic disorders or impulse control disorders etc. Anger management is aimed at identifying the triggers and the thought patterns behind this response. You can start by identifying what makes you angry and why and then start analysing your perceptions. You may see a psychotherapist/psychiatrist to guide you. Some anger issues are biological impulse control issues and one needs medicines to treat them. Treatment of primary psychiatric conditions like depression, anxiety and psychosis also mitigates anger.
