'There is no evidence of psychotic illness'

Postby ooby » Wed Oct 09, 2013 7:17 pm

So i should stop my antipsychotic? This contrasts with a previous pdoc's junior who said i had psychotic symptoms. If there is no evidence why have i been on them for 22 of the last 38 years(16 years on mood stabiliser alone).
If she had meant no evidence 'currently' surely she would have said?

Not necessarily - some doctors don't realise that patients can read a lot into what they don't say, and so they're not very good at communicating, hugs xxx

So you're saying she could have meant 'currently'?

Yeah I've seen doctors write that when they do in fact mean "currently". Check with them first before self-discontinuing any meds :)

sorry it's taken a while to get back: yes, I mean that you may not be showing any current symptoms - that would mean the meds are working for this,xxx
