Court-ordered meds and relapse for paranoid SZ is not a new topic.
Still, I’d like to hear from any and all who experience this with their SFI paranoid SZ son.
Although medicated, he is miserable, scared a lot, isolating, not active socially.
Anti-psychotic meds have caused high blood pressure and PVCs (pre-ventricular contractions) which scare him. M.D.s say they can’t address this side effect.
He will not give permission for me to talk with CW or M.D.s as he wants me “on his side.”
Doesn’t trust even hates “them.”
He even skipped the Yule Holidays this year.
This has been occurring since he was 19. He is almost 48 now.
Every evening we visit on Messenger and he complains and complains or tells me he’s scared. Anhedonia is the inability to feel happiness or pleasure in life.
Tomorrow is the day he is off the court ordered meds. He says he’ll keep taking them.
I remember what happened in the past.
Advise, comments welcome.
