I know my posts are usually always asking questions and not offering much advice, I will though when I can.
My son was changed to clopixol (zuclopenthixole) depot, currently on a cto here in the uk. He has the depot every 2 weeks, he has had no insight into what dr diagnoses as delusional disorder.
He is now starting to open up more , he is saying about hearing others inner speech, and that he has to be abole to read minds , which he can’t and that’s why he feels he has a disadvantage . It’s totally confusing .
He even told his nurse yesterday that he heard someone say “lovely” and “get lost” the other evening when dropping off to,sleep. Here in the uk I think the approach is to try and make this Normal ish , nurse explains to him that 10% of population actually hear voices and that’s quite common etc.
The medication I don’t feel is right though, either dose or med itself. He is so slow, he even speaks slow at times I have to remind him to open his mouth a bit more when talking. I believe he has akathasia too, the walking around is constant , even at night when he can’t sleep , then he will sleep till late when he can sleep.
We are awaiting hopefully an appointment from his consultant . He has recently agreed to see a psychologist to help with his thoughts etc, he wouldn’t have done that before, he wanted no interaction from any staff.
Is the med making him have more insight OR is it making him just agree to anything, or most things that are suggested. Any help welcomed than you .
