Alprazolam isn't for agrressive/violent behavior; it's for anxiety. At my hospital we use a combination of 10mg Haldol, 2mg Ativan, and 50mg Benadryl in an IM injection for violent/aggressive behavior. Other medications that are good for combating aggression are Zyprexa-Zydis(especially the melt-aways), Thorazine and Vistaril (also an IM injection), and Seroquel. Hope this helps.
