Re: character change since 2000

Has there been a diagnosis and which doctor diagnosed him? You didn't mention having taken him to a psychiatrist. Only a psychiatrist should be prescribing some of the meds that you list. I am not a doctor, but it does sound like he may be manifesting symptoms of schizophrenia. I wish you both well.

Re: character change since 2000

he has been to a psychiatrist but the medication given does nt seem to help therefore we think (not the doctor) that diagnoses is possible wrong.
however a something between bipolar, schitzophrenia does exist .
problem to remedy found yet.

Re: character change since 2000

Perhaps suggest it could be schizoaffective disorder. Research and see what you think.
