Intermittent Explosive Disorder

So what is Intermittent explosive disorder (IED) mean? According to wikipedia, intermittent explosive disorder is a behavioral disorder characterized by extreme expressions of anger, often to the point of uncontrollable rage, that are disproportionate to the situation at hand. It is currently categorized in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders as an impulse control disorder.

How to treat Intermittent Explosive Disorder?
Treatment is achieved through both cognitive behavioral therapy and psychotropic medication regiments. Therapy aids in helping the patient recognize the impulses in hopes of achieving a level of awareness and control of the outbursts, along with treating the emotional stress that accompanies with these. I know someone who acts differently and I'm not quite sure if he has the intermittent explosive disorder, but he already seek medical help. I just hope he'll get better soon.
