My son has what we have been told is paranoid schizophrenia
he has been having a hard time the last few days and says he feels like he is losing touch with reality. He is not in a psychic episode but I fear it may worsen if we let it go any longer, can an emergency room help him with any medication until we can get him a new doctor he was receiving help through state program but was having issues with them finding the right mess for him, he does not want to be locked in a room at the hospital like they did
to him before he won't go if they do. I believe he really just needs something to help him until we can get him in to a new doctor. Any suggestions
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: He has seen a doctor but the mess they had him on he didn't like said they made him feel like a zombie so he stopped taking them and they were really nasty about trying new ones for him
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the psychologist should know?
Customer: Not right off hand
JA: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? In general, how would you describe your health lately?
Customer: Lack of sleep seems to worsen them, he says hears voices sometimes, health is okay he is 24 yes old
