Hi there, Just wondering if anyone may be able to suggest warning signs family & friends need to be aware of with our ongoing monitoring of my frail 77 year old Mum who was very recently diagnosed with Late Onset Bipolar? She is only a very low nightly dose of an antipsychotic drug, no other meds such as mood stabilisers have been deemed necessary by the psychiatrist nor has he suggested any follow up visits to him for ongoing monitoring. She has just been discharged from a voluntary admission to a mental health ward in a local hospital & is living independently. Many thanks for any insights or advice. 🙂
