Great question

In reply to sin and personality changing meds, posted by sherwm on October 25, 2003, at 6:39:50

When I was hospitalized for clinical depresssion (bipolar) and religious OCD, I went though a phase where I thought it was a sin to take my meds. The hospital chaplain pointed out to me that off my meds, I was really of no use to anybody - that if I wanted to serve God I needed to be psychologically healthy.

Another tactic might be to liken drugs for bipolar to insulin for diabetes or chemo for cancer - emphasise the medical relatity of their sickness.

Good luck!
