Receiving Prolixin Pursuant to a Court Order
In In re Williams, 305 Ill. App. 3d 506, 712 N.E.2d 350, 238 Ill. Dec. 628 (1999), the treating psychiatrist, Dr. Parwatikar, testified that the respondent had been receiving 40 milligrams of Prolixin twice a day pursuant to a prior court order.
He determined that it was necessary to increase the dosage of Prolixin to 100 milligrams per day and to administer an additional 100 milligrams every two weeks by injection.
The psychiatrist proposed to administer Haldol if the Prolixin did not seem to reduce delusions, and to give antidepressant medications, Paxil and Prozac, to relieve anxiety. Williams, 305 Ill. App. 3d at 511.
