Thank you for posting that! I actually have been diagnosed with IED. I used to get soooo angry over nothing... it was always so random. I would
always get in fights for no reason, sometimes with strangers at school, sometimes with family.
I want the rest of you to imagine that.. you are sitting around at a nice family dinner, and all of a sudden you feel the barely controllable urge to
do some EXTREMELY violent things to your own family for no reason what so ever. Sometimes that barely controllable urge isn't controllable at all,
especially if someone is provoking you. It is not pleasant, at all. And never mind the relationship problems, that's a whole other thing all
That being said, I have been prescribed all sorts of things for IED, including a dosage of around 800 mg of seroquel a day. Stuff makes you like a
zombie, and doesn't play well with other medications. Also pretty sure it can give you diabetes. I don't take any of these any more, and I don't
think I am TOO crazy. I now have a wife and son (and some kitties), and am quite happy.
So, I don't agree with the prescribed treatment. I can say that I have found something that works for me though (can't say what it is on here,
sorry. ), along with occasional meditation. Hell I haven't had a problem with the IED for a few years now that I think about it. Also, i am not
saying that the meds didn't help, it's just that they weren't worth the side effects.
Anyways, I'm rambling. Later!
