Day 14 “Medication”
Medication is a difficult one for Jacob. It’s hard to diagnose his symptoms because he learning disability is so profound so obviously that makes treating him a tricky business. He doesn’t react in the expected way to drugs either. Respiridone is quite a “sledge hammery” sort of med, but it works well for him. We tried a couple of other most subtle medications but they made him feel worse…..And when I say feel worse, well we don’t actually know how they made him feel cos he can’t tell us. But his behavior was worse and he obviously wasn’t happy! So yeh, bit of a try it and see job really!
