Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Anger

These comments are made for the purpose of discussion and should NOT be used as recommendations for or against therapies or other treatments. An individual patient is always advised to consult their own physician.

Anger & Rage
Question: I was watching TV about 2 weeks ago and one of the evening news programs(Hard Copy, or some such thing) presented a segment about some of the new drugs that have been recently approved to help people control rage. It seems that one of the drugs mentioned had a name like "Zippermine" (I'm sure its not spelled correctly) or something. Does anyone know about this drug or others that have been recently approved for the treatment of rage?

Answer: Many of the antidepressants are used to treat inappropriate rage attacks. The SRI class is probably the most popular-this includes Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, etc. I suspect you are referring to imipramine, a tri-cyclic antidepressant;but, I would consult the show to be sure.
