I also asked if there was a legal time or recommended time that olanzapine should continue to be prescribed without any blood test checks,sorry perhaps I didn't explain my question properly,not good typing.
So you suggest 500mg is too high a dose with severe known liver function,would another antibiotic be better
Thankyou, please don't take any more than the £30 -would like to pay more but I am very poor,trying to pay for a funeral,my son.
I am in UK of course -and assume control of prescribing same.Last blood test my son had -he had schizophrenia,his alchol intake was known to them -pychtrists and GP,Gp kept prescribingolanzipine,zoplicone, ver occasional diazepam.Last blood test was feb 2012 until april this year 2015.he was terrified ofinjections -they knew that -local Emla cream was only suggested april.he became psychotic eg worried ad 'positive' psychotic thoughts before appointments,so didn't go till this april -the condition of his liver was known to them from seeing liver consultant 2012. I think he vomited blood,the evening before he died..he was in a community MHT supported care accomadation.I am angry and of course heartbrocken -all the things I thought could be the cause heart attack etc etc plus a cough which I think hehad a post-mortem,showed slight pneumonia but was inconclusive and stated bt PM as not cause. so more reports and inquest.
your comments please -just ti help me get thru this please,thankyou
Thankyou and for your words,prob not quite your normal question so sorry if it was unpleasant for you to have.
not know definetly as cirrhosis -but as consuming cider etc all his waking hoursfor 5yrs plus it must have been and obvious to them all.
I just think olanzapine should not have been continued to be prescribed 2012 blood test to 2015 without a blood test in-between,eve if it made he unwell and then sectioned. they did not know his liver was at that 'no turning back' state as never had biopsy etc -terrified of injections etc,I feel they failed him as theyknew how 'frightended he was'
actually, he did get to the GP for Aprils blood test and was told to come back in 10 days time for results - he was very intelligent and so obvious he would bevery worried etc of the result,so I feel they should have stayed with him,or come to see him afew days after tests incase he was getting 'ill' worrying or sectioned him.ambulance crew found him dead in bed -no one aprt from other 'patients' had seen him for 48hrs.the sink was full of red vomit but he hadn't eaten etc. he still had his correct amount of meds left,pos he took an extra zoplicone or diazepam just to sleep off his worries -had no intention or realised just one more was an overdoze,so I can only hope he would have drifte off into unconsciousness and didn't suffer?
thankyou,do you think that would have been so,unconscious? so his organs shut down -which shuts down first if they couldn't detect heart etc and said it was not his liver that caused his death? .
I realise I have asked you so much,please tell me truthfully how his life possibly ended -eg just asleep,not just something kind to reassure me.after that answer,i will say thankyou and not contactyou again -unless of cause you would be interested to what toxicology reports on tissues etc show in 6 to 8weeks time -silly having an Inquest,I could state on a few pages what contributed to his death . .sincere thankyou for your replies and answers tothese last few questions,please
Thankyou -pm said was not bleeding or internal hemorage -please just tell me my queries re unconscious suffering,he was found in hs bed, in his normal sleeping position on side,perhaps with his knees pulled up alittlemore than normal but no vomit or blood in the bed on pillow etc -lease-please,do you think he drifted into unconsciousness? tankyou
