Customer Question

My son has bepolar disorder. He lives in Montreal. He was in hospital in august 2016. In september he was discharged from the hospital with prescriptions of medicine - abilify 10 mg and epival - 1000 mg a day. 10/07/2016 he was at the appointment and the dose of abilify was tapered to 7 mg. He is a programmer and feels that abilify brakes his brain. He was confused to say that he could not work and instead of it he stopped taking medicine. Today he goes to his office to work. He doesn't want to take medicine any more and doesn't want to say his doctor about it. I worry about his future mental health and asked him to go to the private psychiatrist. But I don't know the costs of private psychiatrists in Montreal. May be he could receive an aid in some mental community?
