Stay on meds!: I know u asked about surg, but meds first. Anger issues: i can see why your doc would want you to stay on your meds. However, none of the meds listed are antipsychotics, so I am confused. Phentermine, while for wt loss, can make anger worse. See if doc will try metformin instead. And instead of the clonazepam, what was your antipsychotic?Is there a less fatty one? Or it with metformin? Be well.
