Extreme Irritability
I was wondering if anyone ever gets extreme irritability? I don't mean just impatient or annoyed but physical pain, a weird restless sensation in my nervous system and at the same time feel very depressed and fatigue, when this happens I cant tolerate any noise or people. It seems like this happens about once a week or twice.

You can get those symptoms from anxiety and/or depression.
Those symptoms are actually typical of these disorders.
Hope this helps.

thanks for the response, yeah i have been diagnosed with anxiety and depression, i am on a very low dose celexa 10 mg, i think its from lack of serotonin, because when i took extra it went away.

I've had the exact same feelings, especially the weird restless sensation. I feel like I can't sit still, I can't tolerate ANYTHING, but at the same time I'm too tired to get up. It's really annoying and I'm not sure what causes it, but I too have been diagnosed with anxiety and depression. I've noticed it happens more on my days off, or days where I don't do much but lounge about so I don't know if it's pent up energy or what. It's good to know though that I'm not the only one feeling this way.

What SSRI are you on? I'm on fluoxetine but I'm wondering if I need to up my dosage. The irritability has definitely gotten worse in the last week or so.

I have depression and anxiety and so does my husband.  It seems to me that 10mg of an antidepressant is a rather low dosage, especially when your experiences with upping the dose have helped ease symptoms.  I would talk to your doctor about increasing your dose.  I'm on Cymbalta and it helps a ton. Anyway, hope this helps.
