Schizophrenic or drug-induced psychosis? etc

Posted by Kath on January 8, 2007, at 13:46:16

I've been speaking with my son every day on the phone. It's hard to be half a country away! How I'd love to give him a hug!!!!!!!!!

Today he said that he has realized that the voices arrive after he's scared, anxious, nervous, upset - so he'll go to the nurse & get a small amount of meds THEN because if he waits until the voices are there, they don't go away.

He's wondering about drug-induced psychosis versus is he schizophrenic. He's wondering, I think, about the meds taking this long to work.

I'm going to post on another board to see if anyone has any experience about this type of thing. Not sure which board is best.

Wonder how they decide when to have him leave the hospital. I hope they keep him in until the medicine has gotten rid of the voices and the 'paranoia/GF & I are in danger' stuff is gone.

Anyone have any experience about when they release people?
