Hi, This does sound like a very difficult and frustrating situation. Get in touch with your psychiatrist and see if there are any dissolvable medicines available which you can put in his food. The other way of handling this is to get him in touch with a counselor who can understand the reason behind him avoiding medications and can suggest effective techniques of administering medicines and probably the counselor might even succeed in convincing your cousin to cooperate for the same.
