Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
A patient who is not deemed by a court to be mentally incompetent CANNOT be forced to take any medications at all. If the doctors are trying to force medications on the patient that causes violence, the patient should leave these doctors, as is his/her right, and go get another doctor.
