You say he's been cleared of all illnesses, how long ago did you take him to the vet? Maybe you need to go back and be more thorough, tell the vet anything that's been happening and they may be able to figure it out. There has got to be a reason behind his change of personality. We've had Charlie 10 years, and while after vet trips he can change a little, it's only for the day or so (mistrust of humans). There are days when no one is home, or it's too hot for him to be active, or he might be missing Jazzys company, but he's been pretty much consistant. I really do think before 'throwing' him out, you get him checked again. Has anything in your behaviour changed towards him before he got aggro?
As cat owners some of us can understand your frustrations, sometimes it can be hard when there are things out of our control, but what you've been saying is very serious and we don't want you, or your cat to end up in severe trouble.
Please, go back to the vet again if it's been a while, there has got to be a logical reason.
Edit: All that typing and i just saw your most recent post. Is there any way your vet can come to your house? Are there other approaches to how he gets his medicine? (i don't know what's wrong with him). This may leave him dopey, but i think your vet may have to prescribe some anti-anxiety meds. So stressed that his claws are bleeding, sounds extremely harmful. Ask your vet if these meds would interfere with what he's on atm. When Jazzy died, Charlie started licking himself raw, he had bald patches all over him. Once we figured out it was because he felt like he lost his protector, the vet gave us Clomicalm. At first it made him dopey, but we adjusted the amount. After a month or so the fur grew back, he wasn't licking and we took him off it.
I'm so sorry for what your kitty is going through. If you could imagine what it would be like to be in his 'shoes' maybe it would be easier.
