Anger Management Q & A


What is an anger disorder?

An anger disorder is a condition in which you experience anger and rage that's far beyond normal levels. Several different disorders may include anger symptoms, including oppositional defiant disorder, paranoid disorder, and antisocial disorder. The most common diagnosis for patients who struggle with anger is intermittent explosive disorder (IED).

What are the symptoms of IED?

The symptoms of IED include:

  • Sudden angry outbursts
  • Extreme frustration levels
  • Racing thoughts
  • Feelings of rage
  • Feelings of being out of control
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Concentration problems

If you suffer from IED or another anger disorder, you may feel particularly energized during angry outbursts, and then exhausted and depressed afterward. Many men and women who suffer from IED or other anger disorders struggle very hard to manage their anger because they understand that their behavior isn't healthy. But, without professional help, you can’t control an anger disorder.

How does anger management work?

Treatment for IED or other anger disorders is often multipart. Some of the possible treatments your psychiatrist at Mindful Urgent Care may prescribe include:

Medication

Medication can help many men and women who struggle with anger disorders. With the right medication, you can control your anger level much more easily and you'll have less frequent angry outbursts. Medication options include antidepressants, anticonvulsants, antianxiety drugs, and mood-stabilizing medications, depending on your needs.

Therapy

Therapy at Mindful Urgent Care includes a variety of approaches depending on your needs. Many patients find that talk therapy is very helpful in uncovering the reasons for triggers and finding positive ways to make necessary changes.

Skills training

Your Mindful Urgent Care psychiatric providers help you learn to manage your anger impulses. You’ll learn techniques and tools to diffuse anger and prevent angry rages. Your skills training may include relaxation exercises, meditation, and other specific exercises.

Most patients who suffer from anger disorders find that a combination approach to anger management is extremely effective. Your Mindful Urgent Care psychiatric provider works closely with you to ensure that you can take control in a healthy way.

If your anger grows out of control, don’t let it destroy your relationships and your life. Get the help you need at Mindful Urgent Care by clicking the online scheduler or calling the office today.
