   If he was not doing that before hand.  And he started doing that shortly after the increased dose (and nothing else had changed).  Then I would think the increase could be the problem.  The key word is shortly after the increased dose.  If it was two weeks later, then something else could be the cause.
   But what ever is causing this - it needs to be reported to his doctor.  The aggression and agitation is unusual and is the opposite of what I would expect.  So I definitely think that this should be particularly mentioned to is Doctor.
