having difficult time in containing emotional breakdowns and outbursts

Small, flat red dots on arms, legs, and chest. Appeared suddenly after taking suboxone one night
From this study (3 weeks ago):
My blood pressure is still up. I started taking 2 losartan a day a little over a week ago. Was not having symptoms as bad when taking only 1. Blood pressure seems to come down some with the clonidine. I think the extra losartan has triggered a reaction.
