    The natural herbs aren't enough for my mental illness. And, I wouldn't think of mixing anything over the counter with my medication--It could be very dangerous.

    There are forums, websites, and chat rooms for people with mental illness. Perhaps you and your son could find support there or perhaps you could contact the hospital or social worker who did the discharge planning for your son before he left the hospital to locate a real life support group in your community--Forgive me if he was not hospitalized.

    Anyway, Best of luck to you and your son.
