No he hasn’t, we’re in IL and I’ve seen on this forum that others from other states or countries have talk wonders about clozapine; I have to mention it to the doctor.
from 2019 to date he has been in and out of the hospital for the 9th time, in fact this past Monday he’s been there for the 3rd week; since I’m also his legal guardian it was an experience to have the doctor to ordered a long release shot to him; in order to see this happen I had to go to talk to the judge in our county to give me a letter clarifying that I was appointed plenary guardian of my son including:
-the power to place him in a residential facility;
-to consent to all medical treatment; and
-to investigate and marshall all assets.
Only after going before the judge and having a written letter clarifying what it means to 'consent to all medical treatment including psychotropic meds the doctor finally was able to prescribe the long release shot, which for now is abilify 400 mg every 28 days. He’s been always resistant to the meds that’s why he has to have this kind of administration of his meds
Unmedicated he’s terribly paranoid and he screams what I can’t even repeat, throws away everything including or shredding money, right now he’s lots better but I’m very concerned that once he’s discharged he stops the meds so I’m already looking into a long care facility, I have determined that he can’t live on his own due to the damage that he’s done to be evicted from the low income apartments and prior to this last hospitalization he decided to go to a cheap hotel and I allowed him to do it but he repeated the pattern of damaging, it was expensive!
So my question to you is: have you tried clozapine?
I’d love to hear from you asap.
Thank you for your reply.
