i was dxd with clinical depression, but i think i could have had hypomanic episodes where i would just do tuff on impulse ike drive around, or i get feeings of wanting to go out of the house suddenly. i am taking remeron and have experienced episodes of rage as a side effect, and i read that rage is a side effect for those with bipolar who are misdxd with depression. anybody have any insight on this? thank you.

No idea which is why I come here for suggestions. It could be a side effect of the med though maybe. Good luck finding peace.

Hi trying2getby,

Antidepressants can bring about manias in patients with a tendency towards bipolar disorder. I would call your doctor immediately and let them know you're having these side effects. It may mean you need a different drug, or it may mean you have some version of bipolar disorder. Only a doc could tell you that for sure.

Good luck,
