Re: sudden psychosis 64 year old male

They are giving him trilafon in 2mg doses, twice a day. He is sounding better, more alert, but he still feels that he is there because he is guilty for things he has done in his life. Today he signed a protective custody order that will keep him under the doctor's care for the next 14 days. One of the nurses at the facility tells me that he does not expect him to be there that long, but I don't know if that is false hope or truth. As of today he has been at the center a week. Today they are doing an MRI on his brain. I don't believe they are testing him for anything further, as the diagnosis of psychosis has already been made. I believe they are just trying to get him the rest and medication that he needs to be released.
