Do you think it is okay for my mother to take her Welbutrin 5 days on; 4 days off?
My mother's SN decided to put her on Welbutrin for 5 days then have her go off for 4 days. She has been on this medication for 20 years. When I asked about it, I was told this is a CA law and needs to be done twice a year; the staff monitors mom's behavior to note any changes. When we came to visit my mother last Sunday my mother was having uncontrollable crying; it was her fourth day off of her medication. This is puzzling to our family; the doctor is out of town so we cannot ask him. Could I have someone from your nursing staff comment? As power of attorney do I have any authority in this matter? Thank you.
