Thank you for your question at

I have gone through your account in detail and I can understand what you are going through.

As per the recent laws in most of the developed countries psychiatric treatment cannot be forced on anybody. It only can be given if you or your legal guardian is willing for the same.

Secondly you need to understand that in mental illness there is a lack of insight. In other words even if you are ill you will never realize that you are ill and the well-wishers around you will realize it. So at times if most of your well-wishers are saying that you are ill then it might make sense to be on medications.

Secondly if some medications are not working good for you and are creating a problem then the medications can be changed as there are plenty of options.

Hope that helps
If you have any further queries I will be more than happy to help you.

Thanks for your follow up query.

If you are a major then you can take you decisions. There are good homeopathic psychiatric treatments available and can be taken. Being from allopathy I do not know the names of these homeopathy medicines, but they are still very effective. Which therapy you want to follow is just a matter of choice. But while you are changing your meds take somebody into confidence as the illness may exacerbate during such changes.

I would be glad to help you if have any further queries.

Hope that helps.

If you certainly feel that you are not ill and should not take medications then you should contact child helplines which are freely available on google search.

But still consider the possibility that you could be ill and you may not be realizing it. Give it a thought and discuss about your illness with someone you trust. If the person agrees that there is a problem then you should agree to your parents wishes.

Hope that helps.
