Amanda Bynes May Be In Psychiatric Hospital For The Rest Of The Year!

amanda bynes long stay psychiatric hospital

We're so glad Amanda Bynes is getting the help she needs. And it sounds like it couldn't have come soon enough!

Amanda was recently moved to UCLA's psychiatric unit, where doctors are doing everything they can to regulate her schizophrenia symptoms.

But it isn't easy. An inside source says Amanda has a long way yet to go. The source says:

"There has been some improvement…however, her diagnosis is complex, and the appropriate drug cocktail to treat her hasn’t been achieved yet."

So what can they do? It looks like Amanda might be in for a much longer stay in the hospital, one that might require more legal proceedings for her parents. The source says:

"Her treatment team believes Amanda would benefit from prolonged treatment at UCLA, for at least the rest of the year. She has her good days and bad days, and the goal is obviously to get her therapeutic and stable before being released. Lynn needs to be granted permanent conservatorship because Amanda wouldn’t agree to continue with treatment."

On the bright side, once doctors can get the treatment just right, Amanda could walk away perfectly healthy! The source says:

"Given time and the correct treatment and medicine, Amanda could and should absolutely be able to live with it and be a productive member of society. In fact, she wouldn’t likely suffer from symptoms of it if she stays on her medication."

We'll remain hopeful for you, gurl. Take as much time as you need.

    They keep saying "drug cocktail" but it's most likely that when Amanda Bynes integrates into society she can have a monthly injection to cover her symptoms. Lots of schizophrenics have difficulty managing their medications when they start to have symptoms so if she has a monthly doctor's appointment where the do it all in one shot, she'll be fine. Many schizophrenics who are in treatment can go about living normal lives.

    Perez……you say you are happy she is getting help, yet you were more than happy to mock her and sensationalize her problems over the past few years when it was apparent that she needed psychiatric treatment.

    One thing to call out celebrities on bad behavior; another to mock them for mental health issues. Reminds me of Rush Lindbaugh mocking Michael J Fox for his Parkinson's a few years back.

    You owe Amanda Bynes an apology.

    Anyone besides me think she was on bath salts? She certainly exhibited all the symptoms and once you've gone down the road with it for so long, you appear to be a schizophrenic…either way…I hope she's well soon!

    its funny how doctors think alot of drugs which for sure i nteract with eachother and not in a good way will fix ppl nope makes there worse its proven that a healthye vegan diet and exercise can cure most things watch the documenrty fork over knife eye opening im bi polar and dont take any meds just eat right and exercise and use 5htp for my mood which is a health supplement that really works and doesnt fuck u up while helping like other meds that put hole in your intestines and stomach fucking ppl who just trust ther doctors blindly r stupid. like on pill like fine but a cocktail diaster in my opinion

    Re: br – those medicines will help her, healthy diet and exercise is not going to help her disorder, I know a couple people with schizophrenia. Ive been in a mental institute for depression, trust me, this medicine is whats best for her! Even the two people I know say they feel alot better with the medicine. Bipolar is alot different from schizophrenia. bipolar has to do with mood, Amanda hears things & thinks people are watching her 24/7 and who knows she probably sees things, come on, she sat a dog on fire, healthy diet and exercise wouldnt have stopped that.

    I feel really bad for her. I have seen people get crazy paranoid on weed and then they'll be like totes crazy acting and saying "oh no weed is natural, it doesn't do anything" lol! yeah so are shrooms. I think weed makes people nuts. It magnifies mental issues. Poor Amanda :( she's gonna be so embarrassed when she starts thinking normally again.
