Not directly. Certain things can be conditioned upon whether or not he is on his meds which may service to encourage him to be compliant.

If the issue was only as to his behavior with you, the court does not have constitutional authority to mandate that someone take their medication in the family law courts. If you were dealing with custody issues and parenting children, the court can issue orders limiting custodial time if the father is not stable and refuses his medication or treatment.

Not within a divorce case, the court cannot. If your spouse is a danger to himself or others when not taking medication, they can be ordered through an involuntary mental illness court case. Best wishes.
