Who comes up with names for disorders? Intermittent Explosive Disorder sounds more like a bowel problem than an anger problem. If you think you have it, you can take Simmadoun as treatment. Or you can just take a deep breath and relax.

Amit,

I'm a school psychologist (I'm taking a class in Game AI programming - that's why I found your site). I work with plenty of students who have explosive temper outbursts on an intermittent basis. That is a puzzling label! And now there is medication for this?

Sorry Lynn. There's no real medication. It's hypothetical (see the original article). :-)
