This is Dr. David
I am sorry about your fiance.
she needs to see a doctor
there are treatments for tourettes
Yes she is on risperadol
she has to be willing to see a doctor and talk about medication treatments
she regularly sees a doctor about it
she scores high on anxiety as well
risperidal is really for treatment for schiophrenia or bipolar disorder.
what dose is she on?
is she taking her medication?
is she willing to see a psychotherapist weekly?
1mg at night 0.5 during the day time
she would be but has not been referred
she scores highly for anxiety as well the doctor gave her some other pills that seem to have ruined any good the risperadal was having
she needs to ask her doctor to be referred to a psychologist for therapy.
will they do that on nhs?
it sounds like she needs to stop those pills.
yeah she has done and we have an appointment on wednesday with the doctor
that is good she is seeing her doctor wednesday
you can go with her to talk with the GP as well
is there anything I can do to not inflame her temper?
and ask for a referral to a psychologist.
ok then i will do that
I hope she gets better.
you are welcome
i appreciate the help
if done, please leave positive feedback below
