Has this been a lifelong problem, or has it only recently started ? If recent, this may be in response to increased life or work stresses, or an anxiety state o depression, which would respond to treatment of the responsible condition. If a life-long patterm, medication might be less usful than CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) a specific form of counselling / therapy which can help you to change the way you identify and respond to annopying situations.
And, as CTmom suggests, involvement in sports and gym can help let out some of the anger --- beating up a leather punchbag rather than a human one, can be really helpful
