My daughter who was first diagnosed as Schz, later Bi-polar, but I can’t verify either, stopped taking her meds (she was on two psychotic and several others, including one for OCD). She has been off her meds for 5 months (so she says). She believes her break was a one time thing. It has been over a year and a half since she was diagnosed. Before that she was homeless, and in and out of jail. Now on a conservatorship and living in her own apartment. Her OCD is back full force.
How many of you on this forum have heard of someone having a one time break and off meds for life. Thanks.
