Latuda (lurasidone) is FDA approved for bipolar depression but can help stabilize mood and behaviors which lead to aggressive behaviors in people with bipolar disorder.

I would not select latuda if the only issue was aggressive behavior. However, if agitation/ aggression is related to a psychotic disorder or bipolar depression - than the Latuda may be helpful. However, be aware that agitation is a side effect in 1% to 10% of people using Latuda.
