They want my mom off of Seroquel, her neurologist wants her on it. We are in Michigan. Her days and nights get mixed up. Her neurologist wants her on Seroquel, he says it will help her with that and also help with her high anxiety. The nursing home is taking her off of it, they say the state (Michigan) won't pay for psychotropics. If they are taking her off the meds her doctor puts her on, why bother even taking her to a specialist?
My question is can they do this? Can they do this without telling me (I'm her POA) ? If they CAN do this then who is responsible legally for her care? And finally, can I just pay for the medication myself if that is indeed the reason they want her off of it?
