She been bad now for afew months beinging really manic then depressed she isnt getting anywhere with the mental health at the mo and im with her 24/7 because she cant be left alone as she feels suicidal please help
Wow and mental health won't help you. When was her last lithium level? You're sure she's taking them? There are other meds that can be used. Since she is suicidal mental health should admit her for stabilization. You can't go on watching her 24/7, you're health will give out. Is taking her to an emergency dept an option for you?
Hello billyboy7. There are "newer" drugs. They are usually taken along with Lithium or on there own. Seroquel is popular, people do well on it. I cannot really advise you for it all depends on your mothers diagnosis, her current dose of Lithium, and what has been tried prior to help her. Regards, pledge
