It sounds like his anger is the result of emotional dysregulation. I’d consider behavioral therapy before he turns 18 and possibly ages out/becomes ineligible. He should be able to learn some coping skills and techniques to manage his anger better and regulate his emotions.

If you point out that this onset of anger might be from stopping medication, do you think you could convince him to get back on it?
