I am suffering from severe mood swings and nervousness. Sometimes I am so mad I want to rip something apart, most of the time my poor husband catches the brunt of it. My headaches are coming back, but I really want to get rid of the crazy mood swings before I hurt myself or someone else when i lose my temper maybe in a car driving, I will fly into a rage over little things...Please help me with this.
What do I need to get OFF of OR ON...
Thank you, Carolyn

I think the Levemir has caused me to have pancreatitis. I have very intense left side front abdomial pain and left side back pain.
I take Hawthorn, folic acid, calcium, taurine, especially to lower my blood pressure.
