So sorry to hear that your mother is struggling with depression and the affect the meds are having on her.
If you have not already done so, please seek immediate help for her through one of the crisis centers or hotlines. The calls are free and there are people trained in handling suicide prevention that can talk to her if she's willing.
If she's not willing to call, then try get her into counseling ASAP. If she won't go to that either, then get her some positive / self-help audio cd's, books or dvd's to listen to that will help improve her mental health. But, definitely take this seriously and get her doctors to do the same!
There are several free and low cost health care resources that might be able to help out in some way. Take a look at that link and see if it can't at least get you started in the right direction.
Wishing you and your mom the very best. Please come back and keep us posted.
I'm looking forward to getting to know each of you and our Health Expert, Dr. Stacy! I can see by reading your threads that this a great group, very supportive and helpful to one another, and I'm very happy to be joining you!
I have some big shoes to fill following Caprice, but I will do my best to keep us running smoothly!
