My son was diagnosed with sz 4 years ago. He just got out of the hospital again. They switched his meds but only kept him there for 7 days. Exactly, what I knew would happen is happening. The new dosage is very low and his delusions are worse than when he went in.
What has been others experience in finding extended impatient care? They really need to be in-house to get them more stable. The only thing the social worker wants to know is where is he going when they are ready to discharge him. Seven days isn’t enough time to take him off a high dosage of zypreza and start him out with a low dose of abilify. The hospital said they are for acute care only.
Has anybody had any luck getting extended residential care? Something for like a couple months until their meds are more stable?
Any advice would be great
