Abstract

This article is designed to provide an overview of the existing literature on pharmacologically managing aggression, with a specific focus on psychiatric diagnoses commonly associated with increased aggression. Self-injurious behaviors and suicide are sometimes classified as forms of aggression, but information presented here focuses primarily on aggression toward others (physical and/or verbal).
