I have reason to believe that I am being covertly medicated and have been for probably most of my life.
Without going into too much detail, I know this to be true because I had suspected it for years, but when I went to the hospital to tell them about this, they convinced me that it was all in my head, then proceeded to put me on practically the same medication that I was already being medicated with. This is how I now know for certain (whereas before it was a suspicion). The reason I believe that they were not open and honest with me is because they feared that I would end up being a danger to those who had been medicating me for years (my family).
I have lost all trust in the health industry because of this, not to mention my family.
So I stopped taking the medication after I moved out of my family's house, but have since found myself to be under the influence of the same type of medication again. I am at a loss if I'm being honest. I am trying to complete a degree in software development, but due to antipsychotics/lithium I literally, the next day, cannot remember what I studied the night before (and this is even the case straight after studying a chapter - no retention of knowledge whatsoever). This degree is pretty much all I'm living for. It's my way out of a crappy life but will be completely impossible to complete under the influence of this type of medication.
So, where do I turn? How can I get legal support for this matter? It is such a strange case that I'm not even sure if I can? Covert medicating is like a legal loophole when it comes to medicating a non-compliant patient. You, as a medical professional, don't need to worry about proving your case legally, or even about the patient saying no, being sectioned, then fighting their case legally (something that I know for certain that I would win, which is probably why I am being medicated in this manner). I have literally no clue what to do. All I know is that the only time I feel depressed/angry/moody/paranoid is when I am on this medication. And the only time I am happy is when I am not. The medication is having the exact opposite effect that it is supposed to.
