Unlikely cause but: Any sensory overstimulation can lead to agitation. Bright lights such as tanning beds can also lead to dehydration. Agitation or irritability is also a symptom of depressions including seasonal affective disorder, which is commonly treated with bright light exposure. Unlikely that the light is the cause but it depends on what you are using the bright light therapy to treat.
