My brother has been diagnosed bipolar and has threatened suicide for over a year now and even attempted it once, hes been brought to the hospital multiple times when hes depressed and it doesn't seem to help because they let him go after a few days. He doesnt take his prescribed medication at all because he doesnt like the way it makes him feel as if he's a shell of himself when on it from his description, i tried telling him that if he just gave it a week or two he would get used to it and that his brain chemistry would adjust, im not a doctor and dont claim to know anything about it but i just assume you'd get used to it. He also does have a drug and alcohol addiction and doesn't seem to understand this just makes his whole situation worse. Everyone in the family tells him how much they love him and he doesnt care to hear it. We need help what do you suggest we do?
