My mother, who is bipolar, was Mr. Morton's patient. She told him she was going to stop taking her medication and that she didn't need to see him anymore. He allowed this. I later learned that he was prescribing her only Lexapro, an antidepressant. It is dangerous for any bipolar patient to solely take an antidepressant as it increases risk of mania, which is exactly what happened. After another suicide attempt my Mother is hospitalized. I called him last week and have yet to hear back.
