Family and Caregiver Schizophrenia Discussion Forum

Anyone have experience getting Blue Cross to process Symbyax on part D?

Jeb gets extra help too, I’m a little surprised you don’t qualify for Medicaid.

It would be interesting to know if the people who died from the injection had given their informed consent before receiving the injection which ended their lives, or was this another example of court ordered treatment where the patient didn’t know the treatment was for their own good, and therefore should not be allowed to decide whether or not they wanted to take their meds?

It is amazing how the Constitutional civil rights and human rights of the individual go right out the window when mental illness is involved.

Hi Wes. I have read multiple recent posts by you that clearly express your dissatisfaction with side effects that some anti-psychotic medications have caused you. You also mentioned that the symptoms you experience with your own mental illness are on the mild side.

With all due respect, many people with severe mental illness, such as schizophrenia, cannot have any quality of life without anti-psychotic medications. It’s very often a question of whether or not the advantages of meds do or do not out weigh the side effects that the meds cause. In many cases, the advantages heavily out weigh the side effects, hands down.

Maybe I’m wrong, but I think your anti-med campaigning might be better suited for another forum. At the same time, I believe so much of your personal experience can really help us to help our loved ones.
