Anger: Medication may be helpful but think about your lifestyle. What is your nutrition and exercise like? How much sleep do you get? Consider the difference between constructive and destructive anger. Peace and good health.

Mixed mood state: Typically anticonvulsant mood stabilizers work best for this mood state. Antipsychotics can be effective as well and sometimes more immediately. They can unfortunately cause extrapyramidal side effects like intense restlessness, muscle stiffness and tics. Anti-anxiety meds help and are used for short-term for agitation. Meds, supplements, drugs/alcohol, caffeine, and sleep disrupters can cause.
