Hey all! I'm in a kind of a situation where I'm not sure what to do. My dad has always been this confusing kind of person. Sometimes he is really sweet and caring , but the very next moment he is the most short tempered and violent person ever. My mom has always faced so much trouble because of his character. It's been now almost 2 years that my parents are living separately and I've tried everything to sort things out, but nothing worked. However through the counselor we were consulting, I've got to know that my father is suffering from schizophrenia and he's kind of reached the extreme level. But he can still get better with medications. However, he is so not ready for any treatment and it's getting really very difficult to convince him for the treatment. But in between that I read this blog that shares the side effects of the medicines prescribed for schizophrenia. http://thelawfirm.com/risperdal.html Now I'm really confused as to what to do. I'm also worried about his situation. Should I actually force him for the treatment or not?
