Please speak with your mother's psychiatrist. Help your mother to a trained psychotherapist. A combination of medication and psychotherapy usually works well in managing mental disorders.
Try and buy the medicines in bulk or till the time your mother is due for her next appointment with the psychiatrist. This will enable continous dosage goes to her and you don't have to fear returning it meds getting wasted incase they get altered at the next appointment.
But please let her have a combination of medicine and psychotherapy in order for symptoms to reduce and be manageable.
Great to see your concern for your mother. I can understand she is really troubled. Trapex is a kind of tranquiliser/ sleeping pill which is given in low dose to keep minor irritability, restlessness and anxiety problems away. It is also a habit forming drug. Two things could be happening with your mom:
1. Symptoms of her primary illness are surfacing, which were hidden due to trapex
2. She is facing a withdrawal of trapex (very unlikely).
It would be best to see a consultant psychiatrist and get doses of oleanz or any other appropriate medicine added.
Pls feel free to contact me for private consultation.
