I need change

I am 34 years old and my life is getting to the point where there is no choice but to seek medications. I thought for a long time that I could adjust on my own, but my doctor gave me Strattera to try and it helped me to think clearer and I wasn't as pushy and easily offended, it also helped me to be a more peacable person. I changed me enough to know that I needed something. Unfortunately, after taking Strattera for about six weeks, my blood pressure went up too high and I had to recently be taken off. After 24 hours of being off I have experienced Anxiety to where I could bite someone's head off, not good. I trust this will pass. I was upset to hear that I had to come off the meds, however, I think it is a Godsend because I beleive I need more than Strattera. It didn't take away enough symptoms so I am going to see a psychiatrist to get some meds. Does anyone suggest a good med to start with?
