Irritability in Adults

Irritability in Adults | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What can be done to prevent the condition?

Avoiding people with colds and other infections may reduce the risk of irritability due to these causes. Many cases cannot be prevented, such as those due to cancer.

What are the long-term effects of the condition?

Long-term effects depend on the cause of the irritability. If an infection is the cause, antibiotics may cure the infection and there are usually no long-term effects. A person who has cancer or another serious condition may need lifelong treatment.

What are the risks to others?

Irritability is not contagious. If an infection is the cause, the infection may be contagious.
