After a few weeks in her first Residential Home, I find that my wife is being given a new medication. So far as I can tell it is of a type that could benefit her condition. I at first thought that it was for a UTI which she has tended to get, but looking it up on the net, I find it is not for UTI, as it is an anti-psychotic drug. I won't go into any detail except to ask (a) should I be informed of any new treatment by the home ? (b) by her GP ? (who, when asked earlier, said that he would still be her GP being local to his surgery) (c) could any other medical person than her GP prescribe for her? I don't want to go barging into sensitive territory, but feel that there should be some feedback in such situations without the need for me to ask anyone. Reading up on some of the drugs that can be used for mental disorders of any kind makes my hair stand on end at their complexities and possible side effects, some of which can mimic or worsen the very condition they are supposed to be correcting. There must be some kind of protocol for the administration of new drugs for people in care, and I just want to be better informed as to what that is, before taking any official action (if any).
