My husband was put on diazipam about 9 weeks ago. They helped to calm him if I got the timing right, but the voices in his head didn't go away for long, so I asked the GP if I could be re-referred to the mental health doctors. They said to try a different drug called Mirtazapine. Just one a day at bedtime. Also that I had to gradually cut down the diazipam until they weren't used anymore. Well we have been to hell and back this last 3 weeks. From not being able to wake him up,to him not being able to speak when he did wake up,to becoming incontinent and to the voices in his head being so bad that it breaks my heart to see his distress. These 'voices' tell him what to do and take the mickey out of him and call him names. I have had to padlock the side gate and keep the front door locked as he kept going out and I was worn out back and forwards to get him in again. I made several calls to GP's and Mental health helpline and just kept being told it takes 2-3 weeks for the tablets to kick in. Its three weeks today. Incontinence I hope has stopped, but have my fingers crossed. Does anyone else know about this drug. Is there any advice you could give me please.
