My son is doing this now more than ever.
It’s hot to the stage where I pre-emt it sometimes before he actually says or does something .
He’s been on aripiprazole for 16 months and yes it’s helped somewhat, but the delusions never really go .
Last week his dr suggested trying a low dose of clozapine, the last few years my son has resisted any change . Also he has repeatedly refused clozapine due to the fact he won’t give any blood samples.
He’s not slightly more coming round to trying it, well he’s not as venomously against it (he’s very vocal)
I feel a bit anxious though as in my mind he’s not too bad , that sounds awful, sorry , what I mean is , he’s ticking along right now and seems somewhat at times sort of content with his life , which consists of staying in bed till 12-1pm then not doing much except on his laptop , eating and generally hanging around the house. Can be 4-5 days before he will venture out to local shop just, he goes nowhere else really.
What is really expected so you guys think? What would show a real improvement, would it be done motivation, perhaps a course, joining a gym, part time work, what would be successful for a med to really be working?
I don’t think I’m making sense here , but just a bit worries of change like this . I’m not letting him know though. Thanks for reading .
