What causes abnormal and aggressive behaviour?

my husband has thyroid problems. if he does without thyroid meds or Prozac, he is like a crazy man. I believe he can be dangerous. I have never been scared of him. we have been married 46 years. I asked him how he could be so nice to other people but soon as he walks in the door I know here we go. the last time it was because I didn t feel like going with him to another church. he throwed a fit. another time we was driving down the road. he was driving. he started going side to side driving reckless. I said let me out. he said go ahead and jump. I hit at him, he must have had his elbow up. I hit with the side of my hand and broke my hand. I was crying and he laughed. if I had somewhere to go I would. I told him last time if it happened again I was leaving. he can take his meds. he acts like a different person. why is he like this/ he just admitted that he hadn t been taking them. he has gotting on me every day for 2 weeks or more. im disable so im in bed most of the time.

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

This may be an urgent situation, and your husband maybe undergoing a process called as psychosis which can be due to many reasons. I would suggest you consult a psychiatrist and inform him about his altered behavior. If I am your psychiatrist, I would take a detailed history and start him on anti-psychotics if diagnosis is proven.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

When things do not go the way I think they should go....I have noticed that I have uncontrollable verbal outburst using profanity when I am alone...usually cursing my wife, even tho she had nothing to do with the outcome....For example, I went in for a job interview, and felt rejected....While driving home in my car, alone, I would shout out profanities against my wife.....I love my wife, and I do not understand why I would do this...Are you able to help? My wife is unaware of this
