New Problems With Meds

“I’ve been taking the same dosage of a stimulant for years with no problems, but recently I’ve started getting angry or moody when I’m on it. Should I stop taking it?”

If you’ve been taking this medication at this dose for several years, I suspect that the anger or moodiness has more to do with stress, depression, or another problem. But if you’re convinced that it’s the medication, ask your doctor about taking a lower dose – and see what happens.
