My son has a history of needing high dosages.
Did your son need the same thing?
He's still a little paranoid that someone in there will hurt him. Not someone specific, just that a fight could break out or someone would randomly punch him. To be fair, he was randomly punched once when were at an amusement park & let the boys go off to ride something by themselves. Some older boy just came up & punched him in the face & he has a little scar from the cut on his face to this day.
And, he has his regular delusions still, which is to be expected.
He does seem to be resting better, but they're also giving him Neurontin, Trileptal & Trazadone, all should make him sleep once they got the racing thoughts somewhat under control.
I can't tell that he's hearing anything - he doesn't seem distracted & he's not laughing to himself.
He does look a little flat - until he gets aggravated at me about something & starts to mock me sarcastically.
It's no wonder his aggravation threshold is low - no cigarettes for a week & he's stopped wearing his patch so that the first one when he comes out is extra good.
