INTRUSIVE THOUGHTS

5 years ago I started suffering from psychotic depression. For 4 years I took an antipsychotic and for 5 years I´ve taken an antidepressant. I quit antipsychotic because it made me gain 50lbs in a month, and caused high sugar problems in the long run. I was doing relatively "well" until last night. I suddenly got this impulse/urge to harm a loved one. It was not a thought, it was a very strong impulse, as if I was possessed, as if I was not in control of my mind. This lasted a minute aproximately and then dissapeared. It was very scary. This morning I woke up feeling "depersonalized", like someone else was inside my body. Now I am ok. The only thing I did differently last night was drink tea, (I am not used to drink caffeine at all). Could this have triggered this? Do you have any suggestions? is there a real danger of harming someone? or is it all in my mind?
