TED'S REMEDIES FOR MOTHER WITH SCHIZOPHRENIA?
Ted, if you have time, my mother suffers bipolar/schizophrenia and they put her on on Pemela (whatevr the antidepressant/psychotic is) and Seroquel to sleep (as well as Klonopin). She also take meds for high blood pressure, cholesterol, etc. If she tries stop she seems get aggressive and hallucinate (devil tell her do bad things). She's always had psychotic temper but only recently in mid-60s start hallucinate/hear devil.
Anyways, seems hopeless, cause once they got you on these drugs for years is hard to get off. Since she has such violent temper in past, it is hard wean her off and be able deal with her (she hides lots weapons around house like a shotgun and ice picks and long knives, honestly I am scared live with her because of the abuse i endured as child). It's just I feel bad she stuck on all these meds that taking her hair away and who knows what else.
