I totally understand how frustreated and sad you, as a Dad sees your son at 19 staying in bed for most of days. However, there is *HOPE* for your son to get well, like some of M.I. Then, NEVER give up to search for med./med. combo!

In regard to your son's condition, you didn't mention what form of M.I., ... however as seeing the name of med. Zyprexa, ... seems to be some serious form of M.I., such as Shizo. or Bipolar. Then, for this, your son needs not only Zyprexa also some form of AD med., such as Wellbutrin SR that offers him 'motivation,' 'energy,' along with good effect for 'sadness' and 'hopelessness.' All of those symptoms are due to severe M.I. your son has.
Zyprexa is one of the most effective AP meds., however Zyprexa alone does not cover all symptoms, especially 'Depression' your son has. He certainly need Anti-Depressant, for this, I wonder/puzzle on his pdoc.'s profession in regard to deal with severe form of M.I. Your son's condition definitely needs more professionalism as to rx psycho. med.

You sound like a 'Super Dad' to care for your ill son, then I believe that you could join local NAMI, or severe form of M.I. Support Group in that you could learn a lot of information as to med., psychological issues due to M.I. Because, 'Knowledge is POWER.' Also, reading other M.I. experiences and some of good literatures are helpful to understand the depth of M.I.

Lastly, in my suggestion, if your son's pdoc. does not pay MORE close attention to his condition, then I highly suggest you to search for more competent and experienced pdoc. First off, try to contact a reputable local Mental Hospital to get a good referral or local NAMI(National Alliance Mental Illness). From there, hopefully your son gets more appropriate med. combo. for his well-being/recovery.
