I need help!! I have a 38 yr old daughter that was just diagosed with paranoia and delusion. She refuses to take her medication Zyprexa. She is in complete denial. Is there any other type of medication out there that she could take as she thinks this particular medication is for people that are completely nuts. She thinks her parents are conspiring againts her and she absolutely hates us. I know its useless to argue with her and tell her she is wrong. Iam also at a loss of how this happened, as she said nothing happened. Please help me someone!!! Regards. aveighttor

Regards. aveighttor Calm down, let her come to you! as soon as she realises she has a problem you can make progress. While she is argueing with you though she focusing on fighting you and not facing the problem. Let her see that you have confidence in her and if she suggests a certain treatment go along with what she says by all means suggest things and stay strong. good luck, please reply back x
