It's a long story but my mother ended up in an assessment centre because of her medication. I've told the consultant the exact reasons why in great detail but she just fobs me off and won't try my mother on a measured withdrawal to see how she goes. I know for a fact that many (if not all) of her problems are due to the medication and this has been proven right as the consultant begrudgingly lowered her medication on some occasions and my mother got better. We also had to lower her medication before going into this assessment centre as she was going downhill and she got better back then also (until she was put back on a load of tablets in the nursing home before the assessment centre). They actually admitted some medication she was on caused her to have seizures too. Not only do I wonder whether the consultant has got my mothers best interests at heart but she seems to want to drag things out . I want them to lower the rest of my mothers medication so she can come back home as her life is just being wasted away in this damn place fast and this has dragged on for years. My family are no help either and seem to forget why my mother ended up in this damn place in the first place. I also think my mother's been assaulted in this place as she had some nasty injuries a while back. Anyone know what I can do to get my mother out of this awful situation? All I want is her tried on lower doses of the remaing medication to see if she improves further but they seem very reluctant to do this and this is putting her health at risk. I want my mother out of that place and the consultant out of my mothers life.
