Medication for a loved one


#1

My mom finally got to see the pdoc. I was also in attendance. Since my mom, she can’t wait in clinic lobbies she gets restless. I have to guide her to better health. Or else she would of killed herself by now. By not taking her medicine and by being a menace. Frankly she has been taking geodon for years, and I never thought it had no effect. Since lithium has been checked off as mood stabilizer we chose depakote. Along with 7.5mg of zyprexa. I feel as if my mom will be much better. Hopefully the therapeutic effect will level and all her OCD and skitzo antics will be neutralized. May y’all find the right med combo for you and your loved ones. Have a good one.
