My son now on 100mg of haldol deconate (being increased next dose fri)
He’s so lacks insight, he has been offered, psychotherapy , sports clubs, outings, help with a course or a job , he wants nothing to do with anyone, he wants to cocoon himself in this house with just his dad and I and wears us down .
His nurse was out here on Tuesday, he basically told her he doesn’t believe ANY of them are real drs, and he wants ID proof , she told him he can check her name on the register of nurses etc, no that’s not good enough he wants their driving licences, passport etc.
He’s convinced a conspiracy against him to humiliate , gang rape, traffic him and says he will kill them of that happens,
He has so many delusions of reference , they don’t even see half of it,
No matter how much I try to explain ( I know a delusion can’t be reasoned with therefore needs no discussion). But it’s human nature isn’t it to try .
He constantly brings up about hen he was hospitalised involuntary , yes it’s been traumatic for him but he can’t move on.
I know he’s ill but how wearing is this.
He says he’s not ill and no he will never “accept “ he is. ( does that mean he has any insight)
He keeps saying the doctors are not from this country so how can they practice here.He talks back of when the dr (gp who initiated the hospitalisation ) came to our house when he was 4 years old (he’s 27 now) and how this dr had it planned all along for him.
Sorry for the outburst I’m just tired, anyone have any success with higher dose of haldol?
He’s non med compliant but is on a community treatment order.
