Can someone explain the reasoning behind getting a patient out of the mental ward as fast as possible when they tell you the meds take 4 to 6 weeks to work? What is it that they expect to have changed in a couple of days? Last time around I met the physcologist or whoever it is that prescribes the meds every morning for all of 5 minutes. For 5 days he asked me if anything had changed, and for 5 days I said no I was still suicidal. On the 6th day he told me that they couldnt expect to get me to 100%, and maybe it was time for me to go home. So I lied and said I was fine, two days later I went home and three days later tried suicide again. Its not that I want to stay there for a long period, I hate the hospital, but if the meds dont work that fast then what do they think suddenly makes you \'safe\' and releasable inside of a week?
