Please help, my brother is in psychosis

My brother is having a huge sz episode. The doctor has him on SOOOO many meds, and hes taking them FAITHFULLY, and hes still going crazy!!! He just wants to get better. He could be veryyyy dangerous as well. To the point me and my mom are scared in our room. He had broke down a few days ago, about buying a game, cops were called, he was breaking down worse then i seen in a while, screaming at the top of his lungs. Then he didn’t sleep for like 3-4 days which is usually the first sign of a breakdown. We called the cops a few times, AND THEY WOULDNT FREAKING HELP US!(becuz he was dangerous, about to swing on my poor mother.) PLEASE HELP!!! WHAT DO I DO???
