What is your gold standard? What is the reality? kt had her medications adjusted 3 or more weeks ago due to her antics then (brought home by police & other issues....ick). kt is incredibly sedated ~ not sure if this qualifies as "stable" or not. It's a hit or miss; kind of like sedating a dog. Sometimes they just fall asleep, other times they lose all inhibitions & get aggressive. I've thought about this a great deal since psychiatrist appointment this past Wednesday. My standards are incredibly low at this time. Sedated is good. psychiatrist is willing to let kt be "tired" for the next few weeks until the increase of the mood stabilizer kicks in & then we go from the add'l afternoon seroquel to just using that dose as PRN. What are your standards?
