My new psych offered to me the idea of reducing my meds, I see him again soon.I think I'll have to explain to him that within 6 to 8 weeks I'd become completely psychotic, and require 3 to 4 months hospitalization, and close help getting through it. Doesn't seem to be any communication with my previous psych at all, just a fresh start.Going into hospital doesn't bother me at all these days, in fact I had the sense that I wasn't in a rush to get home, the last time I was in,but I don't think he understands the situation. Will have to ask him if he is willing to pay for board and lodging for me for six months, whilst I get over med withdrawals:meanie:

Sounds like you know what you need to manage your psychosis. You've learned from experience what works for you and your new psych should respect that.
