Peer Support for my Brother & Updated Meds

So today was a good day, we met with the zoom Doctor first whom has decided to prescribe him 15mg Apiprazole because we all feel it's been helping him more then Olanzapine.... They did say it it makes him to tired in morning to take it at night instead. They also are giving him a dissolve under the tongue pill and it's supposed to be a taken if he feels like he's getting to agitated during the day. Also met with peer support which www encouraging they themselves were once medicated for dillusions so it was nice to talk to a success story who overcame as I feel like all I've heard is the negatives stories. We also are going to schedule intensive outpatient tomorrow and get medical transport rides. All positive steps, continued prayers our appreciated

@chrissbergstrom That is Wonderful. I have a friend that must stay on medication because he hears voices that tell him to do bad things. I hope your brother finds the right medication.

Yes I feel a bit more hopeful today I feel like the peer support helped me a lot to. As seeing someone who is on the other side of this dreadful disease is inspiring and makes me have hope my brother can recover to and who knows maybe he will want to help people someday

Today wasn't a very good day, so I'm beginning to think medication should not have been changed. We will give it a bit but if today was any experience we need to revert back.
