Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your question...
It appears that your son is suffering from a psychotic disorder
. This is a serious psychiatric problem and he can be putting himself and others at risk. Hence he needs urgent treatment, in the form of anti-psychotic medication
in order to control his symptoms. Persons with psychotic disorders typically lack insight i.e. are unaware that they have an illness and that they need help. So, at least in the initial phase, they may have to be given medication against their wishes or without their knowledge till severity of the illness comes down and they become more cooperative.
) is an anti-psychotic medication. Please contine the medication and keep updating your psychiatrist
of his progress. The dosage of the medicine needs to be gradually increased to the full therapeutic dose. If he is totally refusing to take medication, then there are long acting injections available or you must consider the option of admission (he can be brought to the hospital after sedation, and once he is admitted, medication and injections can be given to keep him calm)
