What causes temper tantrums while on Abilify, Wellbutrin and Cymbalta?

I am 69 yrs old, take abilify, wellbutrin and cymbalta for depression, Norco and Morphine for back pain. I have started having Temper Tantrums where I yell and scream at my husband (usually because he has said/done something to make me angry.) I feel totally out of control and it scares me. This is not like me at all. This has happened twice now. Is it just a temper tantrum or could there be an underlying problem?
