I wonder why your parents do not want you on med's. For me it was the opposite. I am 51 and was diagnosed last year. First question is are you sure that you are Bipolar? Are you on any other med's that could be interactive. Have you had your Thyroid checked? Are you Add? I ask all these questions because they all pertain to me. It is critical to see a few Doctors and be sure of your diagnosis. The good news is that when you are on the correct dose, everything in your life becomes clear. I agree, you don't need parent consent. I will be happy to tell you my story in detail if you want. What makes you think that you are? PM me or chat any time. Let me know if you would like more details....Luck to you my friend!
Go to a clinic.. or show up at a public hospital emergency room and ask for help. At least they will have a list of clinics or programs that may help if they don't give you meds on the spot. I got my meds from the Internet long before I was officially diagnosed. As long as they are not pain pills or tranquilizers they are really easy to get on line. Some sites a Dr will sign off on you if you just fill out a form or maybe talk to the Dr on the phone for five mins. There is just no excuse this day and age not to get meds you need so long as you at least try. Though I know trying is often the hardest part.
If you are over 18, you don't need your parents consent.
If you don't have insurance, they can cost a whole lot. You figure you have to pay for the doctor's visit, and then the pills. The doctor's visit alone will cost you over a $100 easy, and then the pills will probably cost you a bunch as well and for only a very limited amount before you need to see your doctor again for another prescription for a refill.
No. Not until you are old enough to afford your own health care. If you've been diagnosed you should get the shrink to write a letter for your parents and give them the alternatives of meds and no meds.
You keep beating the crap out of your best friend for no reason.
yes, if youre under 18 and your parents refuse to let you get medical care that is illegal, if you want medical care, call cps, they will either make your parents allow you to get the meds you need or they will put you somewhere else so your parents cant stop you from getting them
you might be able to get stuff from social services to live on your own if youre not working and then you can get medicaid that way too, if youre on your own youd have more control
You can only be diagnosed by a very competent knowledgable professional and taking unprescribed meds or hiding your illness is extremely dangerous and more than daft. Get a proper diagnosis by at least 2 consultants.
go doctors and u dont... my mate has it ur parents will no
God bless you. Please don't get on meds until you have seen a few different doctors! From experience! Im 27 and was put on meds at age 16. Its horrible trying to come off meds after being misdiagnosed!!!!!!
Use a proxy to be evaluated at the free clinic.
