My anti depressants are making me crazy?....

I just started taking these pills a few weeks ago and I feel like im getting mad about every little thing lately...

For example... My biyfriend got the black ops 2 game and plays the damn thing all the time, I dont mind him playing never had becuz the way I look at it,id rather him play his video game than being at the bar or clubs. Plus weve been together for over three years so the honey moon thing is kinda over anyways. But he just recently missed my dd cheer competition bcuz he stayed up playing too late and today he got off of the game to go pick up a friends daughter. Im pissed bcuz he got off the game for his friend but couldnt get off of it for my dd. since hes gotten the game thats all he does. He comes to bed 6,7 even 8 in the morning. Since the game has came out weve spent a total if maybe 2 hours together... It came out on the 13th!!!!

I know this is a reason to be irritated but im down right pissed off to where I dont even want to talk to him. I dont know if I should talk to my dr tomorrow at my appt about this becuz of my anti depressent are a new thing and I dont wanna sound like a psycho...

I shouldn't think it's the meds, dear. Gaming obsessions have that effect on the people who don't play them. Even if it's never bothered you before. When my ex got Halo 3, he got so bad that he stopped bathing and feeding his daughter and  his mother and I had to do it. I was so livid at his disgusting behavior. I ended up breaking up with him; my husband knows now that I have a breaking point with games, and if he ignores our son to play a game, I will put the x-box through a window. And I used to be a gamer before I had a kid, so I'm not immune from sympathy, but things need to be reasonable.

I would also get enraged, but then bipolar runs in my family and I never bothered getting diagnosed, so I might be giving you terrible advice by saying it's normal if it's not. Whether or not your antidepressent is doing it or it's normal to get so angry, I do suggest you let him know in no uncertain terms that he will limit his gaming time or else find himself with plenty of free time as a single man, if asking nicely hasn't worked.

That's not your meds. That's your "I'm your wife and you're paying more attention to a tv than you are me" sensors going off. Been there, done that, and it's never fun.
