He changed medication about three months ago as she said that it wasn’t helping her at all. On new medication through psychiatrist and he has given her medication for bipolar .. still no improvement in fact it’s worse and she is had a big burst last night that she can’t cope with life and have been drinking alcohol excessively . How do I help her as she says she don’t want to live anymore

Sorry to respond so late.. she is a little better after going to her GP and is going to wean off her anti depressants .. will see if she can take some herbal stuff instead as she thinks the anti depressants are making her go weird and too much anxiety .
