I've been on Venlafaxine XR (generic Effexor XR) for 12 weeks now to treat anxiety. It's working great in that aspect. However, I've noticed an increase in anger/irritation within the last few weeks. When I do get angry, I feel like I'm about to go full Hulk mode. I want to scream and throw things. For example, last week, someone cut me off while driving, and I became so angry I sped up, tail-gated him/her, then flipped him/her off once I passed them. Little things that never used to bother me now irritate me. I'm attributing this to the medication since I cannot think of any other cause.
Does anybody have any experience with this? Not just with Effexor but other antidepressants as well? Does it pass? I don't want to be angry at people all the time.
