It sounds to me like he has anger issues, too, along with ADHD. I hope he gets counseling to help him learn how to deal effectively with frustrating situations. Medication can’t teach skills; medication only helps the chemicals balance. So all the bad coping habits he’s developed over the past decades (habits he will gravitate towards, such as guilt-tripping, etc even in the absence of chemical impulses) has to be reworked .

Not every ADHDer has temper issues like that.

And if he’s the type that scoffs at stuff like counseling, saying it’s all about whining about your childhood, it doesn’t have to be like that. You can just learn techniques without even digging all that up. So there are plenty of options.
