Hi all. I found this forum so interesting and helpful. I hope someone out there can give me some advice.
My husband of 15 yrs has recently been diagnosed with psychosis or sz. he is 46yrs old.He had his first episode and hospitalisation at end of May this year. Left hospital after 4 weeks but relapsed, even when taking meds, after only few days and was re-hospitalised, and still there, 6 weeks so far.
He was doing great on Depakote and Quetipine, but psychiarist noticed that his delusions were not totally gone so decided to swap Quetipine to Respirodone; he has been on these 2 meds for 2 weeks now and he has changed dramatically, he is having hallucinations and paranoia and slepless . To help sleep, drs added clorazipam for the last 4 days. He is now a zombie, breaks my heart seeing the wreck he is now.
I am filling guilty for letting drs do this to my husband, I feel like telling then to stop all drugs, but I know they are only trying to help him, I hope they are.
How can I live while watching and allowing a daily deterioration of the man I love.
Any support will be highly appreciated x
