My friend is experiencing severe paranoia psychosis, due to her abuse of adderall. She is prescribed the drug by a physician, but is not taking the medication as prescribed. She literally believes any person that crosses her path is going to harm her. Her constant fear and paranoia has caused her to neglect her daughter. She has become very confrontational and aggressive. Her family has become frightened of her. Legally, can I or a member of her family contact the prescribing physician to express the concerns regarding her symptoms. She really should be in the hospital in order to get her medications adjusted accordingly.
If she is a danger to herself or others her family can go for a court commitment. Her doctor should help them. Usually its just a short stay approved, but it gives the doc time to get her more treatment if needed. If she does something that they need to call police it goes faster if done thru them.
