Can busbar pristiq (desvenlafaxine) or seroquel XR diazepam cause anger issues?

Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) and Diazepam: Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) can cause anger issues by triggering mania or hypomania. Diazepam can cause anger issues by its disinhibiting properties in the frontal lobes. Buspar does not have this effect and neither does seroquel. Seroquel if anything has an anti-anger effect. Buspirone lessens anger by knocking out anxious irritability. Best wishes and have a happy new year.

Not generally: Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) is a newer antidepressant. Although patients do complain more about side effects, which in of themselves may be depressing!
