Hi all, Mum is now in an assessment unit at the hospital since being discharged from hospital (fractured neck). We found out today at the DST that she's had no medication for 3 weeks because she refuses it!!! No plans for addressing the issue either, I was fuming! The anti-depressant she was on is out of her system - Memantine too, no thryroxine either, basically mum has been going through cold turkey for the past 3 weeks all through Christmas (pardon the pun). Doctor now signed best interest form for covert medication, mental health nurse to see if she can go back on anti-depressant and Memantine. Luckily the CHC nurse suggested going back over the DST form again next week once her mental health has stabilised. I wouldn't agree to sign it until every effort has been made to get mum to take her medication anyway. I'm fuming, mum has had an awful time, so disoriented and confused, constantly crying to go home. Has anyone else experienced this problem with medication?
