Daughter in recovery following relapse, hospital want to discharge her. She’s on 30mg Aripiprazole for psychosis which seems to be holding her, but she has odd moments.
She’ll turn her head and look at me as though she’s not seeing me as her dad. Pretty regularly she’ll ask mum and I if we’re ok. Other times she’ll turn and give us a hug. Other times she’ll become very abrasive for suggesting something as simple as “your hair could do with a comb through it”, or “do you need to brush your teeth”. She’s especially abrasive with mum, and gets very defensive and angry when we try to give her advice about her relationship with her boyfriend.
It looks like mood swings, from happy and loving, to hateful and angry. Is there anything we can suggest to the medical team, either drugs or therapy?
