thank you in advance for all your comments.
I read/heard those meds., but really do not know re: those meds. personally. However three meds. at once sounds too much for your friend to handle. In my knowledge, most of pyschiatrist rx'ed one med. or two meds. for the folks with mental illness and needs to see the pdoc. afterwards, about two or three weeks later whether the meds. have been working on him/her. Also, 'trials and errors' is very common among those who have serious form of mental illnesses, due to powerful psycho. meds. In other words, the med./meds. work good on others does not mean work well to your friend.
Sounds like your friend has Bipolar or similar mental illness as reading 'aggressiveness' that is one of Bipolar's prominent symptoms.
I'd suggest him to call the pdoc. about the change of his behaviour after taking the meds. for a week or so.
