Xanax (alprazolam)?: I definitely do not think Xanax (alprazolam) is the answer because of it's very addictive qualities. But there are certainly many other medications for mood and anger. Those can be symptoms of several different disorders so it's important to get a diagnosis from a doctor. Counseling is often very helpful too.

I agree. Taking a medication may mask underlying issues that may need to be addressed, such as issues with sleep or stress. Best to see a doctor.

Many possibilities: Might be helpful to get a mental health evaluation to rule out conditions like depression and bipolar disorder. Are there childhood experiences that predispose you to pessimism and negativity? Cognitive behavioral tx can help with negative thinking. Have you been to primary care doc to rule other issues such as thyroid/hormone problems? Good luck in your search for answers!
