Irritability can be described as a cognitive effect which results in one experiencing heightened feelings of annoyance, stress, irritability, anger and a tendency towards violent behaviour.
This component most commonly occurs on the offset period of high dosage stimulants such as cocaine. It is often accompanied by feelings of anxiety, paranoia and ego inflation. Irritability may also be a feature of unrecognized bipolar (spectrum) disorder.
The chances of somebody responding negatively to this state and acting aggressive towards others when they would not usually do so differs wildly between people. It is worth noting, however, that most people are very much capable of suppressing these feelings and only those who were previously susceptible to violent or aggressive behaviour are negatively affected.
